I used to make fun of quotes
because they were nonsense and weren't ever true
like that one quote,
"I was having the worst day...
until I saw your smile."
i thought whoever made these up
must have no life at all
just a wishful life, living in a dream.
but what i didnt know
was that it was really me
who was living in a dream.
I did a dance performance at school one day
everybody i met told me i did well
that i rocked and everybody loved me.
after the show there was a group of horrendous girls
they certainly made my day bad
calling me names, oh you know which kind,
telling me how ridiculous i was up on stage
how stupid my song was,
how badly i messed up.
i kept remembering
how my mother told me to ignore it.
i tried so hard to be nice to them
and to get past them
but my way out was blocked
and i was pushed even more.
instead of that calm cool girl i thought i could be
i ran away, trying not to let my tears fall
but the tears came anyway, against my will
home i flew and to my bed i crawled
salty tears burned my eyes
i stuffed my fists in my mouth to stiffle my cries
i couldnt take it anymore, too much in just a year
everyday of the year, one hundred and eighty days
i just couldn't hold back the gallons of tears
that've been saved up in the back of my eyes
the phone rang and i was able to cease my crying
it was just a boy calling at eight in the night
just to tell me how great i was in the show
and if i could tell him the song i danced to
because he wanted to download the song
since he thought it was such a fantastic song
at that i smiled
and knew that the quote was right
just change a word or two
and it came true
"i was having one of the worst days
until you came along..."
