Nothing matters more than those who depend on you, emotionally or physically. Even if the situation is life or death, you have to be there for them, because they need you.


Vanished off the face of the Earth
Trying to forget myself
Hoping someone somewhere's written
My whole story down
I was born in October
In pouring rain to a
Poor family in the South
Was sent back to their country
In the middle of summer
And there I grew
And came back too
I'm in the darkness
All looking back and there are
So many happy times
I'd give anything to have back
But there's more story to unfold
There's so much more untold
And there's little time
There's little space
I grew up moving around anywhere
I could always be found
On the sidelines there
Always the new girl that nobody knows
Always ignored and thrown into the cold
I'm all grown up now
And there's no space
There's no time to tell what took place
I'm sitting here, wishing here
That it could all change
But there's no time, oh
There's no time, oh
I was born in Sacramento
Grew up in China, California, and many places untold
I'm thirteen now and grown up
With problems to face
It's your turn now to tell me
What took place
Vanished off the face of the Earth
Trying to forget myself
Hoping someone somewhere
Got my whole story down

This song is one I entered in a poetry contest once, and it's about me, who I am, and my history (or herstory, don't want to be sexist there). It's about my identiy.

Thank you! I know, a lot of times, the world is sexist against females, so I say stuff like herstory all the time :) even in the middle of class... (Don't think you're supposed to do that...) But who cares?

I have nothing against guys either!

haha  I love your "herstory", we girls have a right to say stuff like that.  Especially to say it and not get called sexist.  Hey, I do it all the time, and I have nothing against guys.  :)
