Somewhere, somewhere
Deep within
She struggles within herself
To let the true one in

Torn between the little girl
And the woman she’s become
Trying to put the pain behind
Through smiles for everyone

She hurts, she cries inside
But carries on for loved ones dear
Not letting on to the pain
No one hears

Alone she carries the burden
Of her childhood long ago
Wondering when the hurt will heal
So she can love and grow

Somewhere, somewhere
So deep within
She’ll fight her way back
To learn to love and live again

For all the victims and survivors of abuse, past, present and future. Never give up hope and know you are not alone and are worth being loved.
