THE ONE WHO STOOD ALONE, TO OVERCOME SO MUCH

THE ONE WHO STOOD ALONE,
THE ONE WHO ALWAYS STRIVED FOR EXCELLENCE,
HAS NEVER BEEN ANYTHING MORE TO MOST PEOPLE THEN JUST A PRETTY FACE.
THE TYPICAL CHEERLEADER GIRL WHO PEOPLE ALWAYS ASSUMED WAS IN HER OWN WORLD.
LITTLE DO THEY KNOW SHE WAS SO MUCH MORE
SHE'S OVERCAME SO MUCH MORE
FROM BIRTH, SHE WAS BROUGHT UP IN A ROUGH HOME
EVEN AS AN INFANT SHE'S SPENT SO MUCH TIME ALONE
MOVING FROM PLACE TO PLACE, REMAINING VOICELESS,WITHOUT A TRACE.
PEOPLE ALWAYS JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER WITHOUT READING ANY PAGES FIRST.
THAT CHEERLEADER GIRL, YOU CALLED SLUT, WHORE, OVER ACHIEVER COULD ONE DAY BE YOUR BOSS.
