A Girl


She was a girl

With bright eyes and long hair

She was a girl

Who swallowed her thoughts

In hopes she wouldn’t hear them anymore

The only word in her vocabulary was 

Self Doubt

No one seemed to notice her

But I noticed

I tried to shower her with love 

Appreciation, guidance

Quite like a flower

But she didn’t want my love

My appreciation, my guidance

I was out of her reach

Like the watering hose was always empty 

I couldn’t help but think 

If only I could reach a little farther ...
