Growing Older

For I am growing older you see
It's not easy to be me
Now that I am sixteen
I'm not gonna waste my time
On lost endless rhymes
I'm gonna free myself
And say what I want
For writing poetry is my passion
And what I can't live without

But, I love this write here~perfectly spoken and laid out! Smile~You have come so far, in such a short while! And it makes me so happy inside for "You!"~I have time for one more dear young lady, "Love To You, John!"

    dont worry, its a gud idea anyways... thoughtful too, and its nice to do things like that for eachother. my gf recently made up an entire music cd for me, packaging n everything :P with a poem on the back and special songs that we like on the playlist... most people these days tend to be afraid of being so thoughtful, cos they're afraid they'd come off as obsessive :P
