"If you're not first, you're last"

I had to say the words
They wouldn't stop but coming
Its not my fault they sprang to life
And everything came doubting
The words were parts of me
Of what I had to tell you
Its crazy how your mind comes out
And everything comes downing
The words, of what I had to say
That maybe just got, ruined
Its not my fault
They're just these words
And yes, they're coming

"Dear God," she prayed, "let me be something every minute of every hour of my life. Let me be gay; let me be sad. Let me be cold; let me be warm. Let me be hungry...have too much to eat. Let me be ragged or well dressed. Let me be sincere - be deceitful. Let me be truthful; let me be a liar. Let me be honorable and let me sin. Only let me be something every blessed minute. And when I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost." - Betty Smith (A Tree Grows in Brooklyn)

I love this poem, especially the ending!! Could you check out some of mine?
