Light in the Darkness

She walks around
In a world of self pity
Thinking everyone hates her
And that she’s not pretty

School is a living hell
And break is heaven on earth
To a girl who has no confidence
And feels no self-worth

She sees the perfect women
On the covers of magazines
Her self-esteem crashes
She doesn’t want to be seen

Being around people
She off by herself
It isn’t a picnic
When there’s no one to help

It takes all of her strength
To get out of bed each day
To be around people
And find things to say

She goes to bed at night
Thinking about getting up tomorrow
Doing it all over again
And her heart’s filled with sorrow

The only thing that’s keeping her
From ending her life
Is her friends that surround her
And show her the light

So be that friend
In her darkness, be that light
And it’s possible that one day
You might save a life
