Inside there is a small girls voice, that cries and moans
Inside is a young woman that lies still and quiet, afraid to move
Inside are voices begging to be free

Outside are scars, where each voice has tried to find release
Outside are eyes shameful and staring
Outside the water flows, as the voices try to scrub it all away

Here I stand a woman, tall and proud
Here is my voice no longer silent
I stand up and shout
I have turned my fears and memories into strength
I have opened the door to the voices

In the mirror I once feared I now look into with pride
My scars are fading but I remember each line
I am strong and proud
