A girl

There was a time when I was young I thought I'd be a girl

Then life got tough and I got hurt I put it all out of mind

Some time later and none the wiser I was hiding in plain sight


There was a pain I didn't know I dared not give it time

Then life got tough and I got hurt I was at my breaking point

Some time later and none the wiser I was struggling to just be


There was a message that I heard I couldn't pretend not to be

Then life got good and I got better I realised who I was

Some time later and much the wiser I saw myself as a girl
