It’s just a little blip,
She said, but something held her back.
And then she felt a tiny drop
Sneaking from her eye,
And she knew that this
Meant something more
Or else she wouldn’t cry.
She closed her eyes,
Let out a scream,
Heard it echo all around,
Ricocheting off the bathroom walls
Before falling on the ground.
She let her eyes open again
And saw it laying there
A scream of desperation
That had once filled the air.
But now it was not strong at all,
Just small and broken, too
The way she felt inside
Until she thought of something new.
It’s just a little blip,
She said, repeating it again.
And maybe that was true for some
But somewhere deep inside
She knew that this was different
And she tried to run and hide.
The mirror pulled her back
And something made her stand and wait.
You’re better than this,
You know you are.
This isn’t a trick of fate.
These are your decisions
And you need to make a choice:
You can run away again
Or you can listen to my voice.
She turned around again
And tried to find the girl above
With the little voice, so small and sweet
That was filled with so much love.
Okay, she said and took a seat
Upon the cold hard ground
And listened once again
For the voice to come around.
I’ve got something to say
And you may not understand
But soon enough I’ll come
To try to help and take your hand.
You know there’s nothing I can do
That you can’t do yourself,
And you won’t accomplish anything
By putting your heart upon a shelf.
I know it’s easier
For you to give up and forget,
But listen to me now and
I promise you won’t regret.
You’re too strong and beautiful
To be hurting so damn much.
You are worth living for
And you should treat yourself as such.
I am not the only one
Who feels this strongly about you,
But they all know that I’m
The only one you’ll listen to.
I’ve been around for years
And I know your struggles well.
I want to help you work through them
And get you out of this Hell.
You want an easy task,
A solution to your pains,
But it’ll take much more than that
For you to break through all these chains.
They stand guard around your soul,
Protect you from the world,
But they also hide you from
All of the love that is unfurled.
You’re beautiful; you know you are,
So dry your tears now child.
Wipe the blood away,
Remember how you bright you once smiled.
You have a chance to change it all
And turn this pain into healing
But you know you can’t accomplish that
By holding in this feeling.
I’ll tell you, baby girl
It’s not as tough as it all seems.
You did it once already
And you built up all these dreams.
You taught yourself to breathe
And you learned how to fly
So please don’t let all that hard work
Just go and pass you by.
She shook her head and one by one
The tears fell down her face
‘Cause now she knew this little voice
Really had been in her place.
She had been there every time
The world seemed to fall apart.
But now everything would be okay;
She could feel it in her heart.
