Finding My Way

I’m just a girl
who is trying to find her way
in this hard world

I’m just a writer
who is discovering herself
in this crowded world

I’m just a girl
who is learning everyday
in this competitive world

Its not as if the nerves aren’t there
I’ve just learnt to conceal them

Its not as if the little voice isn’t there
telling me to stop, quit and let go
I’ve just learnt not to listen to it

The race has been long and weary
but I’m going to make it to the finish line
