We used to know this beautiful, smiling girl.
But as she grew, her life started to swirl.
As time passed, she was lead down the wrong path.
If you said one word, you would hear her wrath.
Months went by and she became bone thin.
That smile now a disgusting grin.
Although she is young, she looks much older.
Every puff and sniff makes her heart colder.
Her family just wants back their loving daughter.
She is so lost they can’t seem to spot her.
The once blank slate, is now covered in black ink.
You might look again, you may even blink.
The eyes that were once a pretty hazel,
Are now under critical appraisal.
On the inside she is breaking down.
She feels almost as if she could drown.
She doesn’t take notice to who she is hurting.
This has become quite concerning.
Her clothes do not cover her inked skin.
Everyone hopes there is still light within.
This fragile girl has scars she will never show.
She wishes to be a survivor, you know.
