Looking back at a happy child
Hiding her troubles with a smile
Staying strong through God's grace
Living life at a not so steady pace
A beautiful three-year-old woman
Torn by a body that was broken

Not ready for that part of like
So her troubles she decided to hide
She believed that she got what she deserved
Thinking she could only get what she earned
How could her God have forsaken her?
She didn't attract the man by her body with no curves

A child like this may go on recklessly
And uglify the ones that come to her beautifully
The child lived her life day by day
And through it all she made a way
I'm living through that child that lives today
