She wasn’t the timid girl who only sat in the corner.
The one whom everyone thought to be shy forever
She wasn’t the one who cried every time someone scared her
For now, she is braver than ever
She wasn’t the little girl who always bruised her knees
Because now, she holds the key
On how to be careful and "Please stay"
Will never be again her plea.
She wasn’t the one who was afraid to be left alone in the dark
For now, she believes being alone is smart
She wasn’t the one who was waiting for someone on the doorway
For now she chooses to work hard to occupy her whole day
So she won’t have time to wait for someone who’s not coming
For she knows, everything is temporary and nothing is staying.
She wasn’t the one who enjoyed the smell of a flower
For now, she refuses to appreciate the beauty over power.
She wasn’t the one who hungered for love
For now, she couldn't careless and she just flies like a dove
She wasn’t the girl you once knew.
Because she is now smarter, wiser and knows how to argue
She wasn’t that poor girl you once used and hurt
Because now, she just considers you nothing but a dirt.
She is now stronger and smarter
She has fixed her heart and is now a fighter.
She is wiser.
And she has promised no one will use her again, ever!
