Found Me

Slightly throw off track
You caught me off guard
Wishing I could go back
Nobody told me it was going to be this hard

Don't know where I'm going in this world
How do I play my part?
I wonder if I could be that girl,
That I was from the very start.

I guess that everyone else was right,
I'm not going to go very far
But if there's one thing I learned in this life
You have to stay true to who you are

So I walk away
Think I've finally found me
Glad I can see the way
And this and this amazing person I can be.

The author's comments:
For the past couple of weeks or so, nothing was going the way I wanted them to. I was constantly being put down. Whether it was I'm not smart enough, not pretty enough, or I'm just simply not going to amount to anything in life.
That hit hard and I found myself crying about it quite often. One day, (while I was crying, actually), I came to this like sudden realization (I guess you can call it an epiphany) that I don't have to believe what other people think my future's going to be. I could be this intelligent person who makes the most out of life. That is how I came to the conclusion that I finally "found me".
Now, I look at things in a more positive way and I must say that I'm an overall happy person. I love this life and all it has to offer. I'm ready to soar. :)
