you remember her?
you used to be that little girl
the one who thought life was fair
the one who trusted the world

the one that was so nice
the one who asked "how was your day?"
and if you cried
the one who asked "are you okay?"

the one who looked up to me
and asked how everything was made
the one who never had to worry if she would eat
the one who didnt worry how the bills would be paid

that little girl is still there
i swear, ill find her myself
ill walk right up to her
and walk her out of hell

you remember her?
the little girl that didnt need a boy
the little girl that would cry
for her favorite toy

well that little girl
aint so little anymore
and sometimes she wonders
if deaths worth living for

that little girl
aint so little at this time
so seal your fate
ive sealed mine

i sealed that little girl away
she had to grow up
she tried to be so strong
but she just wasnt enough


The author's comments:
i wrote this because my uncle said "you used to be such a sweetheart, what happened?". so i tried to explain it in a poem. this came to me very easily. hope you like it.
