It's a big world
I'm just a little girl
I get lost in the crowd
and pushed around
they think of me as no more then
"The quiet one"
but I have dreams too
I'm more then just a teenage girl
It's time to stand out
time to be strong
time to move on, to where I belong
this place isn't for me
too small..unseen
my dreams need to fly
some where big
some where high
it's time to grow up
and become my dream
show people wrong
start to stand out
and start to be strong.


The author's comments:
This is about a girl who isn't very noticed and she is quiet and is tired of not being seen as anymore then that. She is ready to start fallowing her dreams and she is ready to stand out and show everyone who she really is.
