Growing up isn't easy. Seeing the world crumble apart over violence, it isn't easy. Being judged for being a girl as if I had any control over that, it isn't easy. Having everything you've ever wanted in your dreams, and waking up to nothing, it isn't easy. Knowing that you want the troubles to end, and realizing that you're just a girl in a world of violence, that dreams of a better life, it isn't easy. Looking into the future and seeing what all you can become, but hearing others put you down, it isn't easy. Knowing you have all the love and support by people at Girls Incorporated, it helps heal the uneasiness.
