Shadow Girl

April 4, 2011
Pushed to the side
Out of the way
I'm in the shadows
You're on the stage

Longing to be noticed
Appreciated too
Instead of the girl
Who's acknowledgments are few

Overlooked so often
It's become what I expect
But that doesn't stop the tears from coming
All I want is some respect

How come no one notices
The girl on the side
With all her painful memories
And all the tears she's cried

But I swear I'll make it
Someday upon that stage
Out there in the limelight
Broken free from my cage

Still that will be a long, hard climb
From my familiar corner
But patience and determination go a long, long way
I won't be just a mourner

And though we've always read about
Princesses and wishes
Perhaps someday the world will see
The other side of the story
