the girl

by Lila C., 12

Behind the eyes of the devil lies a young, lost girl.
If you try to find yourself, you may lose yourself while trying.
Think hard and carefully about every decision,
but not too hard because you don’t want to overwork yourself.
If you are perfect, you will have nothing to live for,
so don’t be perfect.
But the girl doesn’t follow the rules
because she makes them up as she goes along.
