"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return." ~ Moulin Rouge

I don’t have
An ipod,
A tablet,
Or nook

I don’t have
A my space,
A twitter,
Or Facebook.

I don’t
Wear short shorts,
Or giant hoop earrings,
Or have a bellybutton ring.

I don’t
Text my life away,
Or wear tons of makeup,
Or wear my hair in a poof.

I don’t need
All that stuff,
I love who I am
And you cannot change me

So if you don’t like me
The way that I am,
Then you’re at a loss,
You just don’t understand

That I don’t need
To be pretty,
Or rich,

All I need is somebody
Who’ll love me for me
Not for who
They want me to be.

“A star falls from the sky and into your hands. Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside your blood and becomes every part of you. And then you have to put it back into the sky. And it's the most painful thing you'll ever have to do and that you've ever done. But what's yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands. And one day, it'll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time, you won't have to put it back in the sky again.”
― C. JoyBell C.

Amazing message! I've been trying to write a song a bit like this... You did a much better job with this amazing poem. I love this so, so much!

Great meaning to the poem. Loved it. Too many people think that stuff makes them better than other's and it's really annoying. Glad other people our age have the right state of mind too lol. Keep it up!
