She Is, Was, Has Been, and Will Always Be, an Old Broken Version of Me.

Always quiet in class and
hardly ever outspoken,
wondering if somehow she
would last through the humiliation
shackled to her feet.

No one ever knows exactly
what goes on in her mind.

Still, so quiet after all the years
she walked through life
unable to believe that she
measured up to more than ridicule,
but if she knew how to measure
even an ounce of pain
she wouldn't be who she is today.

She needed to learn
that there was more to life
than feeling like every day is dull,
as if you're destined to die
the same dull way
in emotional agony.

Let me tell you something;
she learned her lesson,
that happiness and mental health
come hand in hand,
and it never helps when
you put your foot in your mouth.
