    I know when I write it's usually about love and what I'm missing
    But I'm not writing just to write, I'm writing for you to listen.
    You see I'm at the point in my life where I feel somethings missing
    I've been sitting thinking and doing a little reminiscing
    What is it that I'm missing?
    What ever it is I'm not quite sure.
    But one thing I know is that when a window is closed God opens a door
    You see I've been hurt so many times before
    And it seems as if noone cares
    It's fine when I'm around for them
    But for me noones ever there
    They act like I don't have feelings or as if they can't get hurt
    Have they not heard Alicia Keys song "A Woman's Worth"
    They treat me as if I'm a punching bag,
    As if I don't feel pain
    They treat me as if I'm a chick with just a body not a brain
    You see I can't change the deck or the cards that I've been dealt
    But I can change the way that people look at me and the way I see myself
    I don't ask for a lot like money or a deep romance
    I just want the little stuff like I miss you phone calls and holding hands
    I'm writing to give you the chance to get to know the girl deep within
    The girl who has been hiding behind a broken heart that has yet to mend
    The girl who has been crying but noone wipes her tears
    The girl that has been sreaming out but noones heard her in years
    The girl hidden inside who makes me me
    The girl who noone has ever taken a chance to get to know or to see
    So if you don't want to get to know that girl thats fine it's your lost
    But just remember I'll shine forever like CoverGirl lip gloss
    So what I wrote is simply to let you know and to make you see
    That from now on that little girl will be heard and set free
    Because that little girl makes me complete
    And from now on I will just do me

    There's nothing better than just being who you are. Surely the right one will appreciate the many gifts that you hold within self. This shined like a bright light. Flow on.

    Hi and a very warm welcome to you,
    This is something most, at one time or another have felt, but ...
    When you cry, on one will wipe away the tears ...but you.
    When your heart is in pain, no one will or can, ease that pain ...but you.
    No one, will over-ride you and do, ...what you don't do ...for you.
    wonderful piece poet, I loved every line of it.
