I see her every day I see her every night In pain, afraid and broken She holds her teddy tight. You look upon the surface A superficial smile However on the inside So insecure, so fragile. The frustration that she feels She knows that she must hide Her thoughts are so corrosive It eats her up inside. Often she feels nothing If only she could cry She's staring at the ceiling Wishing she could die. Another day has passed Another day in bed Paralysed by sadness And her poisoned head. A bully to herself Her body and her mind Punishing herself She treats herself unkind. I am looking in the mirror I despise what I can see I have come to realise That damaged girl is me.
