I Won't Fall

October 27, 2008
By Abigail Hilt, Quakertown, PA

Books in arms
Head held high
She knows they're looking
She knows what they're thinkin'

'A little longer,
then she'll crack'
But they're wrong
All wrong

Years she has been practicing
Hiding her fears
Stoppin' the tears
Enforcing her morals

They would kill to see her fall
To see her stumble
To see her crack
To see the tears

Looks like they'll be waitin'
For quite some time
'Cause she won't fall
She won't break

This glass won't crack
No matter how hard you try
Her heart has been beaten
One time too many

She's bullet-proof by now
At least so you think
But you won't see
She walks these halls with pride

So here I stand
You still waitin'?
Too bad, babe
I won't fall
