I’m the girl you fear and loathe
I’m the girl whose name you probably didn’t know
I’m the girl with holes in her socks
I’m the girl whose thinking is neither in nor outside of the box
I’m the girl whose tired of trying to be saved
I’m the girl whose road has yet to be paved
I’m the girl who says the wrong thing
I’m the girl with clipped wings
I’m the girl who thinks too much
I’m the girl everyone can touch
I’m the girl who wants to die
I’m the girl who will catch you in a lie.
I’m the girl who sings along
I’m the girl who always gets it wrong.
I’m the girl who makes the same mistakes
I’m the girl who is in withdrawal and has the shakes.
I’m the goofy one who is rough around the edges
And the one who wants to go jumping off of ledges
You say I’m just going through a phase
You don’t realize that I’ve already begun numbering my days
You think I’m a stupid kid whose brain is in a haze
The truth is your f***ing annoying, I don’t care how hard you pray
Speak like you know me
Pretend that you like me
Story of my life
someone please hand me a knife.
Because of the lack of drugs, I’m bored
Because of the words you say, I’m sore
Because of the clothes I wear, I’m a whore
Because of the sameness of humanity, I want more.

The author's comments:
I was tired of people thinking that they knew everything about me when really they knew nothing. I was so angry so I wrote "The Girl You Fear". Hopefully someone can relate to it.
