Yung Soldier (Pt. I)

She holds her head high,
Never cry.
Hide herself from the world
A mask she controls well
Smile and laugh
She tells herself
Hide the pain and hurt
They'll never understand
Even if you tried to tell your story
Yung soldier 
Yung soldier
No one will ever know
That you've wanted to go AWOL
Or just quit it all
Family could care less
This is all a mess
No outlet, just her and her emotions
But no time to shed a single tear
Because to the world she hasn't a fear
At least that's what she wants them to believe
A mask she designed all to well
She looks at life as a challenge
Alll the things she must balance
Yung soldier
Yung soldier
No one will ever know
That you wanted to go AWOL
Or just quit it all.
