Not all girls have curvy body
Not all girls are tall
Not all girls are sexy slim
Most girls don’t have it all.
Not all girls are unruly but also
Not all girls are prim and proper
Not all girls like frilly things
Not all girls are makeup lovers.
Not all girls receive equal opportunity
Not all girls have their voices heard
But some girls are rising up now
And will not be deterred.
From the sky it fell
Putting the world under its spell
Listen to the splish and the splash
The pitter patter of it trying to wash
Whatever needs it most
Listen to the rain’s lullaby
Hush, hush, hush, goodnight and goodbye
“I love you” is a simple word
But greatly abused
Greatly over used
Mostly taken advantaged of
And often forgotten.
And so I say to all those who need to hear this,
Remember these words
I love you
I want to tell you something
Tell you that your smile is captivating.
But how can I say this out loud?
I can’t handle this crowd.
I get nervous just being near you
I know that’s nothing new.
But I wish I didn’t stumble around you
I wish I knew what to do.
Still, everytime I try to convey what I feel inside
My words get lost, then I start to slur and get tongue tied.
So when you ask, I just smiled
Because I would rather be silent and hide
Than to try and speak and again get tongue tied.
I hear people scream
I’m in panic
Where am I?
I don’t understand what’s going on
I cover my ears to grasp silence
And when I open my eyes
I find that I am nowhere
The stars, they call
Calling me back
But I cling to this world
Contented at looking up at them.
But they continue to call
Even when I constantly ignore them.
Do you hear the silent screams?
See the scars that are invisible?
It’s so hard to explain
But is anyone listening?
Is there someone who can help?
I heard him laugh
A true laugh
A real one
Not his sarcastic laugh
It was genuine
It was lovely
It was intoxicating
I wish I could hear that once more
I’d like to hear him sing
That song that touched my heart
Shades and shadows
In shapes in the dark
Hidden from sight
And it echoes
It echoes through the walls
And you hear it ever so…..
It’s my heart
Whispering to yours
