Sweet 16

By , Battle Ground, WA
You can't go back and time flies by.
I look at myself and I want to cry.
So much has happened this past year.
So much hurt and so much fear.

Who said sixteen would be sweet?
There's so much dreams I didn't meet.
So much time that I spent crying
So much thoughts I didn't need.

I wore my fake smile all year long
Some could see through it, but played along.
With people around I was happy, my soul was not dying.
Alone in my room I was heartbroken and crying.

I don't want a lot of guys.
I want no dating. I want no lies.
I want to be loved by only one.
Who would be my love..who would be my sun!

But can I love again? I often wonder.
The answer is unknows. My heart sinks under.
I have to love again! I want to!
Without love theres no me, no you!
