The Girl Part 2 "Puppet" Read Count : 6

Sub Category : N/A

The despair that holds her back tugs on her heartstrings 

But like a puppet she will obediently play along 

She was once optimistic and filled with joy

But that way of life soon came to an end

Her mind was used as a distorted decoy 

The distraction that consumed her entire world 

She wanted something to change 

It didn't matter if that were good or bad 

She wished she could take a stand 

And sometimes imagined that she had 

Under the influence of a higher strength

She patiently waited untouched 

Looking to anyone for the answers 

With the piece of hope that she clutched 

Was she weak or a diamond in the ruff?

Passing her by without looking twice

She knew this life would be tough 

But she never got to roll the dice 

Succumbed to her controller, she falls short 

This won't be her last match

The strength she's building inside will be enough 

To make that final catch 

The thin, torn strings are starting to break 

Soon the puppet will be free of the ache
