Challenged but not Defeated

A young girl coming of age
Whom has faced many of rage
Just turned 18, barely an adult still a child
Daddy's little girl who is very wild
Coming on rough times like a broken down car
Out of that driveway she didn't make it far
Engine dead
Fills her with dread
Burnt up and froze worse than any of sorts
Yelling so bad her face evilly contorts
Down on money and bills to pay
She says "this stupid car can just stay"
Later down the week
It's trouble in paradise with the friends she seeks
Boyfriend's gone awry
Her luck is hiding behind acting so shy
Boyfriend's treating them like trash
Wanting other girls in a flash
Feeling down she goes for a walk
With only friends next to her she tries to talk
But the stress builds, and tears collide
With her rose red cheeks where a smile should reside
She says "I have to be strong" as she is seated
And then says "I am challenged but not defeated"
She stands again and her feet plant into the ground
Here she is making a stand; she's going for the second round
Nothing can move her backwards where her feet are planted
Her heart is brave even though slightly tainted
She is a challenged girl in a tough world
Refusing to be defeated; around her everything is swirled
Her energy and strength both build
She has the heart of a champion, a great power she does yield
