Pain, here In my chest,
Something to which I wasn't attuned
I just wish I could rest
Though old, It feels like a new wound.
Through All the tears I ford,
Its not what I should have ignored.

Sometimes, Giving up on a fairy-tale is the hardest thing to do, The hardest part of "growing up".
Somehow, I don't want to lose the last bit of my childhood That I still cling to, Like a familiar safe blanket. I know that in order to gain one thing, first another must be parted with. The hardest step anyone ever takes is the first one forward, Because you simply can't go back.

Lying to myself was the hardest thing to do,
Telling mysef things that just we'ren't true.
"There's no knight in shining armour, no prince"
tears came to my eyes, the words made me wince.
Get up. Fight.Win through the pain.
After the tears are gone, open your eyes. See the gain.

Pretending the past doesn't hurt won't make it go away, but then again, wishing for it won't make it better either. I have realised its time to let go of the silly things I have held onto for far to long, the pieces of my heart for instance. Its not okay for me to sit and cry when I should be standing up and starting to fight back. This worldcan throw a lot of shit at you, and, The only way to get anything done is to get the fuck up, and be strong, and start throwin shit back.

I am strong. I am woman, I am a mother. hear me roar.

Well, this is...interesting. The rhymes seemed rather forced, but the imagery and ideas were quite strong. You definitely have the necessary imagination, but I believe you style needs a bit of work.
