Little Girl Rising

The lonliness of being this girl
Her Innocense taken away
She hides herself and her eyes
Finds comfort in being shy
Frightened of what she may see
Knowing she will give away
The secrets she holds deep
Isolated by what she keeps
Scared to let it be released
Afraid of being alone to fight
The worst of all is the night
Powerless - exposed 
Unable to hide - Terrified
Prying eyes hunting her down
Piercing straight through
Frozen like a statue - concrete
She shuts down - emotionless
Only strength can take her there
Keep her from feeling 
Taking her to another space
An escape - to another place
Forced to grow up before her time
Face the fear and take the strength inside
She stands alone this time to fight
Secrets revealed - preditor exposed
She is just a girl finding her way
Taking her stand fighting for her life
Reclaiming her innocense to be a girl
An experience that opened her eyes
To the person she is inside 
The inner strength that she finds
Keeping her safe from preditors disguise
This is the story of one little girls rise
