Left Behind…..

Here lies the girl I could have been

The one who could smile

Have fun

And blend in

She could dance

Regret the same things

She was by no means the dumbest

They said she was smart

But she knew for sure

She chose to remain back

Here lies the girl I am

The one who stressed

Stayed at home

And stuck out with a frown

She couldn’t dance

She stuck to people like her

And she had few regrets

Besides not having anything to regret

And she kept herself busy reading her books

And they said she would go far

But she knew she was still not there yet

The girl here now sees the girl that could have been

She doesn’t know which she prefers

But she does know

That every year

She cries that it could have been her that got left behind.
