    Please forgive me for breaking DESTEE'S Rule but this is a mentee of mines work. She just turned 13 and is real talented, so Ihope y'all will enjoy it.This is from the pen of LaShawn Riley, a star in the making:
    SPEECHLESS
    every day is a beautiful day
    but it's kind a funny
    how I can be whole but speechless
    how I can talk and not be tired
    and yet still be speechless
    how Ican be sick of the sad ways
    and it makes me speechless
    cause speechless
    is how I feel
    whenever I'm without you
    it's all over and yet
    nothing is or can
    make me speak
    unless or until
    I can speak with you
    everything else
    keeps me
    SPEECHLESS
