From Kite to Nothing

For once

Give me a reason

To look your way ever again

Give me a clue

Of why you deserve my respect

For once

Say something kind

When I'm on edge

Off the edge


Tell me I'm wrong

That I'm not dumb

That I'm not ugly

Not fat

Is an occasional compliment

So difficult?

So rare now are your sweet words

Your uplifting encouragement

You used to make me feel like a bright, yellow kite

Sailing through the skies

Always so cheery

Always so energetic

Now, my confidence is nonextistant

I'm nothing

Nothing at all
