Love is like a stray dog. Everywhere you go there are people wanting it, looking for it, or wishing they had it back.

I'm not a bad person
I really don't mean to be
But I think you'd understand
If you really knew me
I watched my dad pull outta the driveway
I couldn't run fast enough
After all the years of fighting
My parents finally gave up
I watched everyone around me
Go on with their lives
I couldn't do that
I was too scarred to be alright
I watched my mother fall in love
I watched my father have stability
I tried to focus on my life
To the best of my ability
It was hard to do
But I did it
I finally found my place
I owe it all to my struggles
And the tears that rolled down my face
I met a boy that I love
And of course he broke my heart
But I think he's starting to see
That we don't need to be apart
I'm not scared of love
Just the things that come with it
I've never heard of a love story
Without a goodbye in it
But I have faith that I can find
What my parents never did
And I can find it on the first try
Settle down and have kids
I used to be scared of life
I used to be terrified of death
But I know that I can find happiness
And keep it until my last breath

To those of you who think you'll never get through the thing that hurts you the most, neither did I. But I did get through it. With music and a little hope.
