Sing a song for the lonely angel.
The one who grew up to fast,
Who thinks back and remembers a happy childhood past
And wonders what went wrong.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
The one who would explain herself if she could
But doesn't think she would be understood
And so she buries her secrets deep.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
Who's tired of feeling second best.
Who's being subjected to some cruel test
And feels as if she's failing.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
The one who just watches and observes as though she has not a care.
Even though she has her own thoughts and opinions to share
She won't tell them because she can bear no more ridicule.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
Who's tired of feeling ancient when she's only a mere teen.
Who has many small deeds and actions go unseen.
If she doesn't do them they won't get done and she won't leave them for someone else.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
Who folded up her wings 'cause she feels she can't fly,
She's been reaching and reaching and can't touch the sky
She's being held down by others.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
The one who wants her friends to feel like her friends.
But just people trying to makes ends meet ends
But rather an extension of her very self.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
Who wants him to notice her
But who knows he won't not now not ever,
Not while she around that other one who's so much better.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
Who's tired of feeling invisible,
Who's tired of seeming invincible,
Who just wants to be normal.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
The one who wants to smile for real
The one who wants her scars to heal
And to live her life to the fullest.

Sing a song for the lonely angel
See if you can make her smile or laugh
Make her see her talents, all of them or even half.
See if you can help her fly back up to her heaven.
Sick of feeling second best, sick of feeling lonely, sick of feeling invisible, sick of feeling trapped, there's got to be a way to get it all out, there's got to be a way to escape.

"Sing what you know of the angel in hell." ~Phantom of the Opera, the Phantom~

A nice write here with a good structure. I like the repeating mantra. You should shorten a few lines. The last line of stanza 5 is long and doesn't flow well. You could probably combine a couple of stanza's and make it read better overall. I understand though that you said what you needed to say. Sometimes it's not about the reader as much. Just a couple suggestions, but a good write that I enjoyed reading. I feel what you are saying here and that's the most important thing.

omg i feel like its describing me (does tht seem conceited?) but this bit especially:
"Sing a song for the lonely angel.
The one who grew up to fast,
Who thinks back and remembers a happy childhood past
And wonders what went wrong."
