Who They Wanted Her To Be

1 min read
She took a deep breath.
She counted to three,
A picture in her head
Of who they wanted me to be.


They wanted her to be normal,
Happy and kind.
They never thought
That this girl would be blind.

Not blind by the meaning
But blind in the heart.
Blinded by darkness,
Blinded by dark.

ALSO SEE: JUST A LITTLE 
She walks around lifeless,
Her heart beating but dead.
A walking corpse,
She is lost inside her head.

Things have no meaning,
At least not anymore.
She was not how she was,
How she was once before.

She is one of the living
But one of the dead.
A part of her is missing;
She hangs on by a thread.

She hung her head low,
Took one final bow.
She stepped off the edge
Saying one final vow.

“I will not change who I am.
As hard as any of you try,
This is me giving up;
This is one last goodbye.”
