Broken Girl

There was a girl
hidden away
behind a curtain of pain.
All she wanted
was to be loved.
Long and hard,
she toiled away
to make her life just so.
She made her beauty
shine within
and worked on her without.
But still the boys
they passed her by,
choosing friends of hers instead.
She began again
to improve herself
becoming successful
in her own right.
She’d get smiles
every now and then
but when decisions came
she was left up on the shelf.
That pretty girl
broke inside
thinking all the while
she wasn’t good enough.
Surely
there must be something wrong
if no one wanted her themselves.
Never knowing
all along
the boys who passed her by
thought themselves
undeserving of her love.
