More Words for Wednesdays posts can be found here, here, here and here. “You are More” by Tenth Avenue North “There’s a girl in the corner with tear stains on her eyes From the places she’s wandered and the shame she can’t hide She says, “How did I get here? I’m not who I once was. And I’m crippled by the fear that I’ve fallen too far to love” But don’t you know who you are, what’s been done for you? Yeah don’t you know who you are? You are more […]
