    I've learned that along the lines of love and lust lies obsession
    There seems to be less answers than questions
    Love can easily turn to hate if not handled with caution
    Those that work the hardest are barely acknowledged
    That success can easily be your downfall
    And people that love you never seem to be around at all

    I've learned that tears make a person stronger, but can also make them drowned
    That people with the most experience and less knowledge are always crowned
    That the less you expect is the more you shall recieve
    The more that you put your heart on the table, the more greedy people feed

    I've learned that life is so short, there's no telling how long it can last
    That you never know the outcome of situations, so be careful for what you ask
    That anything is possible, but dont waste your life waiting for the unreasonable to occur
    That anything will come down your path, if it doesnt, then its obsurd

    I've learned that mistakes can turn into valuable experiences, but only if you take them for granted
    That your heart will never be the same again if its once damaged
    That your dreams and reality live in two different worlds, but its up to you to decide which
    That people come in different shapes, different colors, and different sizes

    I've learned that tomorrow is not certain and yesterday is but a dream
    That your future is way different than your past or so it seems
    That your thoughts are the only pure delicacy that you can own
    Bcuz no one can read your mind and everyone has a thought of their own
    That nobody is capable of doing something for you, if they cannnot do it themselves
    That you cannot expect to be on top, if you never want any help

    I've learned that the sky is the limit and the ground is close enough to catch you if you slip
    That lucky doesnt exist, you're only with the things that god has blessed you with
    But as soon as you take it for granted, it can easily be given to another
    That you must treasure everything you own b4 you go under
    That people watch you more than you think they do
    1st impressions are everything and how you act is how a person rates you

    But most importantly...
    Ive learned this is not a game, this is life...

    Wow, this is so good, baby girl. My fave part:


    That your thoughts are the only pure delicacy that you can own
    Bcuz no one can read your mind and everyone has a thought of their own


    Wish I had been this wise when I was your age. :)

    Very nice analogy of life. Keep the flow coming.

    I've learned there are more problems than solutions.
    More solutions never tried.
    More need, less support.
    Longer waits, for relief.
    More wins, less defeat.

    " That lucky doesnt exist, you're only with the things that god has blessed you with
    But as soon as you take it for granted, it can easily be given to another "

    That your blessings are at your feet. So small and large, pick your blessings instead of walking over or on them.
