You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. -Mae West

My heart's a fragile thing,
Are you worthy of holding it?
My hand needs a stable hand to hold,
Are you stable enough?

I might seem like I have it all together
But at my center
I'm just a little girl
Who needs an adult to help her

When I cry
Will you say good bye
Or wipe my tears away?
Will you break my heart,
Or are you truly here to stay

I might seem like I have it all together
But at my center
I'm a little girl who needs an adult to help her

Will you be there through my ups and downs?
Or will I just scare you away?
Can I be myself
Will you see for who I truly am
Or will you run away?

I might seem like I have it all together
But at the center
I'm a little girl
A fragile little girl
A little girl who needs an adult to help her find her way

A picture is worth a thousand words, however it takes a real artist to turn words into pictures.

Have you heard about the new Lebron Iphone, you have to set it on vibrate because it doesn't have any rings

This is the type of thing that is already perfect in its raw format, extending revising and other things, will allow it to supercede most modern day poets, I find this poem ver jeanese qua. but I love it

"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's Heaven on Earth."

---William W. Purkey
