    Born and raised to be confident
    But
    I failed to nail the expectations laid for me
    Well
    at least I thought I did
    until I look back and see what Ive came to be
    I've had my life changing experiences
    Ive done some crying
    Not saying more will not continue to deliver some tears
    But how I react n how I deal will keep me from dying
    Ive took some bad turns
    and faced some ugly times
    Ive done some things that Im not proud of
    But I wont ignore it or try to put it out my mind

    cuz Im not the same little girl, locked inside her body
    Im not the same child that runs from her mistakes
    Im not the same person that was afraid to admit who I was
    Im not the friend or daughter that only learned to hate
    Now I can proudly say that life has taught me to not let anything phaze me
    Because I have transformed from a scared little girl into an ambitous young lady

    People always tell me
    that I act older than I seem
    Not knowing I was forced to grow faster
    and quicker than any normal gene
    Ive had my heart broken
    my insecurities have been found
    Not saying that I found my soulmate
    or that I am confidently sound
    Because there are dayz when Im scared
    But as far as I know thats considered typical
    Im just saying when people dish out complaints
    I learned to stay strong when people get critical

    Cuz Im not the same little girl hiding from the world
    Im not the same lost child ignorant to the truth
    Im not the same person that couldnt find her way
    Im not the same girlfriend or sister that was afraid to pay her dues
    Now I can proudly say that pain has taught me to not let downfall make me
    Because I have went from a little girl into a strong young lady...

    whoa

    I feel the intensity of every line, girl. The growth and the strides you've made, especially recently, have made me so proud of you. Now here is this piece, reflecting that growth and with your voice sounding so powerful and strong. Just makes me smile so big. Yes, you went from scared and little to ambitious and strong. You're still baby girl, though. :)

    Much love.

    With a mind as attuned 2 life's ways as yours is at your age, that srong young lady will definitely grow into a very strong, proud Queen.

    Never let anyone or thing get U down, princess.

    Keep your mind tight.
