She sits all alone, a lost look in her eyes,
emptiness in her soul surrounded by lies.
She cries out in silence, a feeling of despair,
her hands stretched out, to no one who cares.
She opens her mouth to utter a word,
there’s no one near for her to be heard.
She depends on others far too much
she begins to use them as her crutch.
The only way that she will win,
is to love herself by looking within.
Once she becomes her very own friend,
not each day will seem like it’s the end.
