Just a girl

As I grow the struggles get harder,

the days drag on longer,

the despair takes over.

How to move on from such pain,

a love lost without any gain.

I know not how to cope,

and I hold on to little hope.

My best friends how they worry,

my family does not notice,

the pain becomes unbearable,

As tears stream down my soft cheeks.

I ask myself,

"where is God?"

No one can know the true thoughts,

the true feelings they do not matter,

how can I move on from such pain?

After all, I'm just a girl.
