“The truth is you don't know what is going to happen tomorrow. Life is a crazy ride, and nothing is guaranteed.”--Eminem <33

You smiled when I was happy,
And you wiped my tears away.
You took care of me every day,
A price that I can never repay.

You still mean the world to me,
No matter what you do.
Hurting me is just a quality,
That you have learned to pursue.

I can’t stand to see who you are now,
Every day is just another vow.
I vow to become the best I can be,
With or without you I see.

I am who I wanted to be,
And you’re just a person who cannot realize
What lies behind the eyes.

All the pain and tears I felt,
Was just a part of the life I was dealt.
Wishing I could change my hand,
I can never stop to see what we had was so grand.

Love with me fear is something I need.
Without you in my heart,
I feel incomplete.
Don’t hurt me unless you can mend it.

All I know now is a lot of pain,
Please take back all the rain.
It makes me think of you,
And when I do, I don’t know what to do.

All I know is that I have grown.
With you is all I know.
I’m moving on and letting go.
Without you is my choice.

The author's comments:
This is a poem about a girl who is blinded by love. She cannot find herself, but when she does she knows that is who she really is. She doesn't need him. She needs to know herself and to love herself before she can feel deeply about anyone else.
