she knew exactly what she wanted
and how she'd get it
not trying so hard
just to make it

she was close to her family
she had their trust
she was the best that she could be
how fast it all changes

it was the blink of an eye
knowing the consequences all to well
she tried new things
she never thought she would

drifting farther from her family
and closer to her friends
trying harder just to make it
she's lost and confused

in life's big game
she doesn't know where she's going
or how she got to where she is
she wants it to end

but then again
she really doesn't
she just wants to give up
and give it all away

she knows how much she's changed
and she's so sorry
that she drifted so far
into something that nobody ever wanted her to be

she knows they love her
but do they trust her

this poem explains everything about my life: the good little girl who never goes wrong but then I was sent to boarding school. and there everything changed. I couldn't trust anyone, I know that now. I trusted myself but that didn't work too. now I'm drifting in my own piece of life.
