"This is what it is, this is who I am
This is where I finally take my stand
I didn't wanna fall but I about to crawl
I met the one with two scarred hands"

-Newsboys, Born Again


The girl's face is masked
Behind layers of make-up
The girl is hidden
Behind her purple-dyed hair
The girl's confidence is broken
By the taunts of tomorrow

The girl cries in the bathroom

Wishing for something more

The girl follows the crowd
Who obviously doesn't accept her
The girl knows
That God says she's beautiful
But this she can't see


This girl....is me


The author's comments:
A few months ago, I began trying to fit in with the crowd. I began to feel really insecure, and never felt good enough. Now, I'm over that, but that really seemed like a poem to be written. :)

Into a single timeframe?
