Here's to the Girl . . .

A Poem by .Because.I.Said.So.
"

~song by yours truly that speaks to yours truly~

"
Here's to the girl with lots of friends,
And here's to the girl who doesn't want to leave her bed
Here's to the girl who smiles all day
At least at school, where they think she's okay

Here's to the girl with the happy family
Here's to the girl who can't see her dad this week
Here's to the girl who never cries
At least not in public, where she dries her eyes

Here's to the girl who wears her
Cheers to her, let's raise our glass.
She'll smile and wave, 
But what she really craves,
Is that feeling someone cares enough
To know she's not okay

Here's to the girl who sits and waits
Here's to the girl who doesn't sleep 'til late
Here's to the girl with the hidden scars
Hidden because they won't get her far

Here's to the girl who hates that life
Here's to the girl who takes it without strife
Here's to the girl who loves you all
Yet can't find someone to catch her when she falls

Here's to the girl who wears her mask
Cheers to her, let's raise our glass
She'll smile and wave, 
But what she really craves,
Is that feeling someone cares enough
To know she's not okay

Here's to the girl who makes herself laugh
By saying things that cut like glass
She won't say it to you, but she'll say them to herself
Because she feels like it's true,
But not to you

Here's to the girl who's still in the fight
Here's to the girl with a nasty bite
Cheers to her, because don't you see
I am her, and she is me

Author's Note

.Because.I.Said.So.
So this is most of the song I'm writing for my friends band, in case it doesn't flow very well. It's not really finished yet, but I'm working on it. Also: this is going to be a hard or alternative rock song, depending on how it goes, so keep that in mind, yes?
