Hold on tight

Once a lovely girl
Now she's only lost
Gave away her love
No matter what the cost

Always being there for others
Never learned to put herself first
Her peers just let it happen
Leading to so much hurt

She knows something's wrong
Yet she struggles to seek help
Others need it more
Is what she tells herself

Only way she'll take it
Is when another makes that choice
Ignoring her excuses
Giving that her true self a voice

All those years of hiding
Buried under layers of doubt
I reach for her
Time to let this girl come out
