What Had Happened Was

What had happened was,

She wasn’t comfortable in her own skin.

All she wanted to do was embrace what was within

But with all the judging and all the hate, she kept it fastened in.


What had happened was,

She hid from the truth

She hid from the pain

Nothing to lose, nothing to gain.


What had happened was,

They still spoke after she was astray

Only her companion begged her to stay.

Would this babble ever rip away?


What had happened was,

Her breaths taken on earth didn’t go to waste

More girls easily took her place.

But instead of ending the way she did,

They embraced what was within.
