one step

my silent smile

my silent cry

i can no longer sit quietly

and let the world pass me by

i see the beauty

i know its there

but me on the sidelines

too shy to share

i want so much more

i see it clear as day

but i cant quite reach it

it feels too far away

its time to care

its time to shine

for this girl who was always

the last in line

i close my eyes

and step in to the unknown

my heart full of courage

i walk this path alone

ill be alright

better than before

i know what i need

i deserve so much more

my destination is clear

its easy to see

as long as i stay on the path

thats laid out before me
