Where did that shy girl go
Yes, the one who was always alone
The one who read books to shut the world out
And go to her own world of imagination
And dreams for the future.

She’s gone, she has a new self now
She is not so nervous any more, she stands up for herself
And does not need a friend or an older sibling to fight her battles.

The new girl in me is now confident,
She does not need to worry herself and please other people.
She loves herself more than anyone else in the world.
She forgives, no grudges.
She loves, not hates.
She lets go, not forgets.
She learns and does not regret.
