The girl inside

The girl inside

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

You think you beat it but you haven't

"
Strong and proud
her smile hides
the girl inside

Tall and loud
she silently
shouts "pick me!"

and suddenly
someone says
"you need a partner?"

and she stuffs it
back in her
mind's end,

the girl last picked
but first one kicked
just around the bend.

Well I know this girl all too well but if she hangs in there she realized being strong or the odd person out for the right reason is the most honorable position one can hold. Only the real recognize her. Good, earthy and meaningful KL.

Thanks so much, I appreciate that. It would seem a lot of us writing folk have similar experiences.
feeling desperate...wanting to find attention, and then almost immediately realizing....she was better off without it...

"picked then kicked"
alone never tasted so good.

It can be a struggle. Feeling good alone, but wanting to be part of something.

I have been this girl, KL. Why is it we must exclude?
