SmiLe, i Love you :)

She used to be the girl that said no
She used to be the girl that everyone questioned why
She used to be the girl who stood her ground
But now she’s the girl that let go
She’s the girl that gave in
When the world around her began to spin
She spun along too
Cause she didn’t know what else to do
She spun faster and faster knowing she was headed for disaster
But she didn’t care
The girl that used to say no had died within
and now this girl spun all alone
Not knowing how to stand still again
But then has she spread out her arms to get a grip
Someone who cared reached in
and they pulled her close
They showed her how to love herself again
and with this renewed faith
She walked away to show
The world that she again
knew how to say no

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem as a way to say something about my past couple of months. It's about losing control and just as you think you're never going to find your feet again, someone is brave enough to reach out their hand and take your's to help just because they care.
