Life

You never know what you got
'Till someone takes it all away
It always seemed so close
But now I know it's so far away
You never know where to turn
Until you've missed the chance
It's usually to late
When you're ready to ask, "May I have this dance?"
I thought I knew what it was like
To have everything I wanted
But then one thing occurred to me
After I was badly taunted
There are few things I need in life
One of these is love
I've learned this through hate and strife
The other is loyal friends
Who will stand by you forever
I have one of these
And I will release it never
Not even if you say, "Pretty please."
So please help me now
I need come love
And I can tell you this
It isn't going to come from above
I know it's true
I've been a bad kid
And when I've had a problem
I've always ran and hid
But that's got to change
I've got to deal with it
'Cause if I don't now
I'm going to throw a fit
I've tried to end my life
It didn't go too well
This world is filled with hate and strife
All I've got to say is, "Farewell!"

This poem is so true for sooo many people. one of those people is me. I have been teased and humiliated ever since I was a mere toddler. I have learned to deal with it, but deep inside I am a very depressed child. One person who has helped me through these tough times is a boy who I have been really good friends with since I was in the 5th grade. He is the bestest friend a girl could ever have and I will never forget about him.
