Little By Little


Little By Little

A happy hard working girl,

She has a bright future,




No one sees what les underneath,

She hides behind a mask,

She has spent years perfecting it,

The intricate design bring people in,

She only shows what she has to,

She act’s in-breakable,

But in reality… She’s scared,

She’s broken,

She’s stuck where she was left years ago,

In that house,

Where her childhood was taken,


Gone forever,

Everyday she fights her bloody demons,

She wants to give in and end it all,

Behind her mask,

It’s cracking…

Her only protection is fading,

Little by little she’s dying,

Little by little I’m dying…
