" You can't make something stay that wants to go. You can only love what you have while you have it"

For the girl who get's off work
at 12.00
on a school night
to provide for her grandma

for the girl who wakes up
at 3:00
in the morning
from the reacurring dream of her running away by herself

for the girl who finds love
at the wrong time
on the webpages of her myspace
and holds to it as a crutch while things fall apart

for the girl who
at every moment
feels a prisoner in her own home
unsure of the path she has chosen
clinging to things that don't hold true anymore

I know you
you learned to stand on your own two feet
even when they're weak that way

Please don't be as stubborn as I was
refusing to give up under pressure
clinging to something superficial
til all that's left is your pride

Please, Please be okay,
God don't let her take her life away
I don't know what I can do for her
but teach her what I have learned
