And just for thought...
The songs brings me back to those days,
those days when I stood so certainly confused.
Today I sit but it's not much different.
Now at least I know there is charm in this soul.
I believe in love now.
Maybe that's the difference.
Or, maybe, I finally just accept who I am.
I was just a girl back then.
Another cookie cutter image of every other adolescent girl
but dimensions have a way of forming when tragedy strikes.
There's not much I don't remember about my life
even if sometimes I would prefer not to recall it.
I can tell you the first time I fell in love and every hurt that followed.
I can recite names, places, dates, years but it's all trivial.
I am brought back to days where they lasted forever,
when I stood still waiting for life to begin.
It began true enough, swiftly, sent into a tornado of emotions that I wasn't ready for
but I made it... eventually.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
