Just a Dream

Every emotion trapped inside
Never able to have a glimpse of freedom
Happiness and passion
Overpowered by fear
Feeling like an over blown balloon
Ready to pop and be free
Every emotion and thought and word

Dreaming of a life where Fear is afraid of its self
Where everyone is different
Able to walk in a room and feel beautiful
Then look around and still feel the same way without a doubt
Where an innocent girl doesn't have to become a sl*t to be beautiful
Or to get the attention of a guy
A life where a guy can respect a girl
Not for her body, or her looks but for her soul and her heart

This dream is just that a dream
But maybe, hopefully my dream will become a reality

I feel the exact same way. It's also sad to see girls change themselves just so guys will like them for their looks instead of their heart.
