Thereís something behind my eyes
Something you canít see
Something no one understands

Iím not picture perfect
Iím not a sweet little innocent one
Iím not as naÔve as you seem to think I am

Iíve seen death
Iíve seen destruction
Iíve seen pain

Sometimes I dream about the end
About not having to live with this past
Not having to live alone in these feelings

But then I realize how different things are now
How much Iíve changed
How hard Iíve worked to escape all that

But no one realizes it
No one knows what Iíve been through
They think Iím average

Iím not average
Far from it
I overcame great obstacles

I am stronger than them
But I am weak to them
I want to be them

I want my smile to be real
I want my innocence to be intact
I want to have hope for the world

Itís too late for me though
Iíve seen too much
Thereís no going back

The world is an ugly place
Pain and suffering are rampant
And no one tries to fix it

People complain about the world
When theyíve never seen it
But thatís all they do, complain

Iím tired of watching people sit around
Fight for what you believe in
Stand up for your fellow humans

Iím a hurt lost little girl
Why did no one save me?
How did I slip through the cracks?

I had to save myself
I had to deal with knowing the world is a terrible place
No on stood up for me

I am strong
I changed, I saved myself
I may be young, but Iím certainly not naÔve

wow... i love this. I can relate also, i have had to see the world and i have to agree, it is and most likely will always be a terrible place. No one seems to care anymore, they have no hope, and i dont think i have much nmore left. I am only 14, and i think that its sad that i have had to see this. I wish i could go back, and be innocent again, and not have seen all the horrible things i haev seen... but like you said, its too late.

I want a relationship i can finally sink my teeth into.~ Alexander Sterling
