Falling Behind

these are the words that were left behind
the thoughts
the dreams
the tears that she cried

lost to a world of malice and pain
where the lies
and the truth
are all said and done in vain

no one cares as they watch her walk by
as she runs
and she jumps
and her wings take her high

but the glares and the taunts are like a wind so fierce
pushing her back
holding her near
too much stronger are the eyes than the girl that they pierce

pushed down, and down, she screams to the stars
wanting to escape
but wishing to belong
to a world who constantly lifts her up, just to watch her fall

The author's comments:
I wrote this because a lot of times I feel like I'm being held back. Like I'm falling behind and never reaching my full potential. But i know that I just have to break free, and know that I can do, and be better, and that no matter how many times I fall, I can always get right back up.
