Favorite Quote:
Don't let anybody tell you who you are; don't let anyone tell you that you don't deserve what you're willing to work for.
Never give up; you\'ll never know how far you could go until you try to get to where you want to go.

You say you know me so well
but are you sure you really do?
can you really look at me and see me?
you can't point me out, can you?

My favorite color is what?
I love being where?
my best friends are whom?
what color do I want my hair?

Speak up-you don't know?
that's a huge surprise
either involved or not in my life
you chose not to-there's no compromise

I needed you there
I raised myself
you were supposed to help me grow
but I learned to count on myself
and nobody else

I wanted to go and hang out
for you to take the time to punish me
I just wanted you to love me
but you never cared at all about me

For someone who seems to know me well
I guess you don't know me
guess you don't see me
as well as you think you do
now we see the truth

The author's comments:
I wrote this about someone in my life who hurt me very badly. Though I care about them as a person, I can't ever repair the damage they made. This is a personal poem, just venting my feelings.
