Girls like her peak in High School Always thin Good at everything Great at sports Beautiful Lots of friends Outgoing Confident
Girls like me? A wallflower I'm not alone I have sort-of-friends I'm a shadow in the back of the class Always silent Mid-season I'm failing Getting grades up just enough for the final report card to say I'm "smart" Fool the colleges i do Silently being the only one who doesn't understand But the class is moving on without you Crying because I'm "not good enough" Below/Average at sports Never good enough for the team Stuck on the sidelines Always watching My life is a TV program I laugh and watch But never feeling a part of it I'm just a spectator
Girls like her peak in college too Even more beautiful then before A boyfriend to match And a petite body that looks great in everything Flying through college Instagram model
Girls like me? Flunked my first year Home i go More clueless than ever "I changed my major" i tell them I put on the act "I know what I'm doing" It's all a lie A mask I wear Falling apart inside Feeling despair The tears come easy They come fast How long will this misery last? Comparing, Comparing It's a bigger high school now Except no one gives a **** this time round I did this to myself Want to fix it Is it too much to ask for a win? Medication helps the focus I am making a plan
I'm learning I'm finding myself It's okay to take my time It's okay if I'm a little slow So why do i feel like I'm just fooling myself? Everyone has a different path I haven't given up I haven't stopped moving So why i am walking the treadmill? Moving but still in the exact same spot?
I'm jealous of girls like her They got it all Wish things were different Wish i was given their hand Cause fate has delt me a rough one
She gets the grassy meadow I get the stormy mountain She gets prince charming I'm still waiting She uses her wit to defeat the witch I escape and run through books and other things that distract
What is wrong with me? Why can't i be good at things? Why is this so hard? I wish things came easy.
We were friends Me and her And i hate the green monster that leaves me with this jealous anger
Stay away Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat All they do is cause me harm All the doubts and pain creeps back I keep reopening the wound. Those negative thoughts i though were gone? Well they are buried in the back of my mind ready to resurface.
This is just the beginning of my story I know this I am destined for greater things I know this I will make it I know this I will graduate I know this
Yet, Girls like her Leave me with lies that echo...
I have been struggling with school. I want to do well yet i self-sabotage. I am getting better. I have a plan and i am going to succeed and fight through college, yet i see pictures of a friend from high school and that is all it takes till i start to spiral into this black hole of doubt and fear.
