My little girl is still afraid.
I’ve been trying to convince her
to let it go, that we’re ok.
Trying to make her see that we won’t
get hurt or still be played.
We won’t make the same mistakes,
because we’ve grown and we’re stronger
wiser and so much mature now.
But my little girl is still afraid.
We function seemingly secure and confident
day to day and we handle our business in
that grown woman way.
But at home alone we cry for all the pain that was
never released, that I hoped had gone away.
But until we work through this, the fear and the pain
will never go away.
And I know that it’s not good for me to live this way
but I still haven’t been able to change because my
little girl is still afraid.
