See Me Grow Up

See me cry
See the truth behind the lies
See me smile, see me laugh
See the flashbacks of my past
See my bad habits come to an end
See me leave footprints in the snow
See me wave hello and goodbye
I'm amazed to see everything new
Time flew by and left a mark
See me dance in the rain
See me ignore all types of pain
See me grow up and take on the world
See me now, I'm not a little girl
See me graduate high school
See me graduate college
See me wear my heart on my sleeve
See the people leave my side
See the people stay by me
See me start to make my dreams come true
See me speak what's on my mind
See me help people, see me forget
See the next me.
I bet you thought I wouldn't write anything like this.
See me prove you wrong.
I thought you might be surprised; you don't know me then.
See me see you be shocked.
