You see her, that girl, walking down the hall
You try to avoid any eye contact with her
She is the girl who everyone wonders about
The girl who stays silent
She is the girl who hates being in crowds
Because everyone stares at her
And they all laugh and whisper
They never let her go a day without snide remarks
They call her names and start rumors about her
But they don’t know what she has been through
If only they knew
I walk down the hallways avoiding people
I hate when people call me names
I hate when they constantly whisper about me
But soon I’ll be back home
Be in the comfort of my own room
Only to walk by the mirror and stare
Stare at the scars everywhere you look
But that’s all they can see
But not all that I feel
If only they knew
If only they knew, well now they do
She isn’t hiding anymore
She isn’t in the shadows anymore
If only they knew
That she is a survivor
