Why Be Day When You Could Be the Night?

Why Be Day When You Could Be The Night?

Why be day?
When you could be the night.
Next to the dark allure
the golden glow is nothing.
Dark velvet you could almost feel
calling your name
mysterious whispers beckoning you.
Beckoning you to the diamond-littered place above.
When the monsters come out
and the average hide
a place for the bold
Why be day?
When you could be the night.

Broken Girl

Today I stumbled upon an old post on an old blog that I had made. It included this video and these words.

Have you ever heard a song that gave you the chills? Or just made you think? Well for me, this song did both. It really is an amazing song, one of my favorites actually. This is for any girl who’s been abused, raped, or just hurt or broken. Remember, you are beautiful no matter what :)

I turned on the video, and I broke. I broke down crying in front of my little brother. I wasn’t even able to make it to my room. I am that girl now. I am that broken girl. So many times over have I been broken. I am not even remotely innocent. Why? Why am I so messed up and broken? Can I really make it go away? I give up. I’m not strong enough. So God, I need YOU to be strong enough for me… I know you are.

“Broken Girl”

Look what he’s done to you
It isn’t fair
Your light was bright and new
But he didn’t care
He took the heart of a little girl
And made it grow up too fast

Now words like “innocence”
Don’t mean a thing
You hear the music play
But you can’t sing
Those pictures in your mind
Keep you locked up inside your past

This is a song for the broken girl
The one pushed aside by the cold, cold world
You are
Hear me when I say
You’re not the worthless they made you feel
There is a Love they can never steal away
And you don’t have to stay the broken girl

Those damaged goods you see
In your reflection
Love sees them differently
Love sees perfection
A beautiful display
Of healing on the way tonight
Tonight

This is a song for the broken girl
The one pushed aside by the cold, cold world
You are
Hear me when I say
You’re not the worthless they made you feel
There is a Love they can never steal away
And you don’t have to stay the broken girl

Let your tears touch to the ground
Lay your shattered pieces down
And be amazed by how Grace can take a broken girl
And put her back together again

This is a song for the broken girl
The one pushed aside by the cold, cold world
You are
Hear me when I say
You’re not the worthless they made you feel
There is a Love they can never steal away
And you don’t have to stay the broken girl
You don’t have to stay the broken girl

Everything I Couldn’t Be

Everything I Couldn’t Be

I always held myself…

so high

I always thought I…

was better

And now I start to see,

you’re better than I ever was

And now I start to see

you’ve become all that I couldn’t be

Sometimes I wish I knew

exactly what they’re thinking

Sometimes I wish even though

I know it will hurt

I always thought I was better

and I always held myself so high

But now you’re the one and now

you’re everything I ever wanted

Let the Fury Rage

My reason for living wasn’t because I didn’t want to let my friends and family down. Although I didn’t want to, that wasn’t enough for me. What kept me alive was the people telling me to end my life. I burned with a passion. My fury raged within me. I would never give them the satisfaction of ending my life. I’m going to grow. I’m going to be so much better than they ever were.

My anger kept me alive until another day when I could be happy again.
