"All is fair in love and war"

Just hold on
Don't be in such a rush
It's when you're not looking
That you'll find love
Times will get hard
Friends will come and go
But the ones you know are true
Be sure to keep close
Don't let a guy
Define who you are
And don't keep looking back
On those permanent scars
Be sure to listen to mom
Yeah, she's always right
And don't think you're always alone
While you cry yourself to sleep at night
When you're in the 8th grade
You'll find your best friends
And they'll be there to lift you up
Time and time again
You'll have some crazy nights
Over at Amanda's house
And when she says "don't eat the Q-tips"
She knows exactly what she's talking about
Then come across the Jonas Brothers
And think you've fallen in love
But then you've moved on
In about 5 months
Then high school comes
And it's not as great as it seems
Most days you'll walk around
Feeling like you're stuck in a really bad dream
And when you ask Jacob to Homecoming
And you're standing with him at the dance
Don't just break his heart
Give him one more chance
He really is a great guy
Trust me I should know
What's harder than getting him to love you again
Is trying to let him go
And you're going to suffer
Because of your own mistakes
But don't let them break you
Cuz you've got what it takes
The when Coach McGilvray says
It took Tyler 30 minutes to run across the feild
Please don't raise your hand
And ask him if he was for real
When Christian tries to tell you something
Listen to him the first time
Cuz you never know, you may end up
Loving what you find
And don't let Jeremy copy your homework
Mrs. Richard will just take it up
And to be honest
You couldn't beg enough
And Abigail, yeah she's the best
And she's always right
So do not for one second
Ignore her great advice
Oh, and stay away from Twilight
It really does you no good
And yes, Beau will do to you
What everyone said he would
Recognize your talent
Cuz you've really got something
And don't listen to anyone else
Cuz their words mean nothing
Live life to its fullest
And no, you don't always have to cry
Stay AWAY from the drama
That would probably be wise
And last but not least
No, daddy won't call you back
But remember that Micah loves you too
And just hold on to that

The author's comments:
Looking back on my life these last couple of years I see that not only was I oblivious, but I was too young to know that things would get better. Now the world I see isn't only tears and pain. I've grown up so much since then and if I could go back, I wouldn't. The things I've done and mistakes I've made have made me who I am today. And I wouldn't change that for the world. Even if some of them have cost me a lot. Like I've said before, I do not regret the people, only the mistakes. But now that I think about it, I don't regret the mistakes, only the decisions. I hope that by sharing something so personal I can help others see themselves in a different perspective. Much like I do... :)
