She by Isabella

She wants to be

A confident kind of person,

A “they’re never late for school” kind of person

A chill, confident kind of person

The same kind of person who sings on stage


She doesn’t want to look back,

To the person she was before.

She wants to forget the past

And try as hard as she can to move on


She tried to hide who she was

Trying to fit in the boxes society has laid out for her


She wants to forget

All that’s happened in her life

She really wants a blank slate


But she can’t have those things.


Try as she might

Society doesn’t want her.
