My Lessons in Life

I am just one of those typical girls 

Who wants this-and-that all the time.

I could be my treasure for a moment,

Then turn it into trash the next second.

Remembering what I had gone through in my past,

I try to keep a smile across my face,

But there's so many things buried within me.

So many memories to cherish,

and so many experiences to learn from;

It made me stronger today.

Sometimes I hoped that someone could understand me,

And I learned that I'm never going through this alone.

Now, I can stand up for who I am

To help others who are living like my old self

'Cause this is the one and only me

And I wanna make that change in their lives.
