Who Are You?

Is this me?

Who have I become?

Why am I different?

This new person seems weaker


This person looks like she has gone through a war

She has battle scars to prove it

Look in her eyes, it says it all

Her heart is no longer the same


People begin to talk

They say that she is broken

Hurt, lost and in tears

Why? Because she trusted people too easily


Her faith in her beliefs are lost

Her eyes are open to the world

The cold and ugly truth about how life works

She was too late to stop herself from going to the edge


Now she walks amoungst us

She seems so sad and ghost like

She can no longer trust anyone

She is all alone in her battles
