Lost in thoughts
And at a loss for words,
A girl listens to what she’s heard.
Easily influenced
And pressured to fit in,
The game of life she’ll never win.
A friend who cares
She calls her “best one,”
Little does she know, the “best” is done.
Who is she now?
Who even knows.
She’s pushed the “best” as far as she’ll go.
Ignoring, not caring and
Acting as if she doesn’t matter,
This story can’t get any sadder.
A girl gets lost in society
And also in the teenage world.
Is this still the same girl?
She surrounds herself
With people who aren’t real,
Her identity they will steal.
They don’t care,
They’re just curious.
While the “best” is somewhat furious.
They can say what they want
They can say it all.
That girl. . . is gonna fall.
She’ll be left
She’s gonna cry.
Who’s gonna be by her side?
She’s letting jealousy
Change her ways;
What happened to the good ol’ days?
The girl has realized
She’s lost herself,
But it’s too late. . .there’s no one else left.

The author's comments:
Teens need to realize that throughout school (especially high school,) they're going to be faced with challenges. They need to be themselves all day, everyday & watch who they call their "friends" vs. their REAL friends...before it's too late.

This is beautiful. I felt like I was right there, in the hall of my former high school, reading this. The subject is timeless and the author did a nice job balancing the heartache, the pity and a sense of faith in the future.  Well done!
