sweet girl, you are more than the actions of a man who couldn't see your worth more than the mistakes you didn't make, a burden you didn't deserve you are beautiful and resilient with a heart made of gold you deserve a love that lasts a lifetime a fire that never grows old you are not a victim you are not as small as that man wants you to believe you are not helpless or weak you were not being too naive i pray one day you see yourself more than just a body in the mirror i hope you see the beauty in your heart, the wonder in your soul each day this image becomes more clear
