I am no longer the girl
Who goes to you when I am teary.
I instead became a girl
Who knows to care for me.
I refuse to be who I was
A year ago at winter up till spring.
I refuse to be her a year ago:
Afraid of what misfortune brings.
I am the girl with kindness
Reigning her heart and believes in good.
But I am the girl with courage,
To believe that she always could.
I am the girl
Who can get scared,
But I’m not the girl
Who’d run away instead.
The girl who cried at night
About her taken memories,
I would rather take flight
Not away but for every day
Misfortunes that may come to me.
I am now the girl
Who stays behind to fight for me.
