Little Girls & Little Boys - Poem by Nichole Pettit

A little girl's heart is broken
Every time her dolly breaks
A little boy is pissed
When he gets in trouble
For breaking the girl's dolly

A little girl moves on
When she breaks
A little boy's heart
When she becomes
Bored with him

A little boy's heart is broken in two
When a little girl accepts his
'I love you'
Just to keep him hanging on
To give her time to find something new

A little girl tells him
I still care
I'm just unsure
If I want him or you
I'll wait and see

Maybe this one
Won't mean the same to me
I'll just stay with you
Until the gray sky
Becomes a clear blue

I might choose him
Over you
But, until then
I still really care
About you

Didn't I tell you
I Love You?
I'm just unsure
I might love him more
Life may have more in store

I just want to see
If he's more for me
I believe
You told me you loved me
Wouldn't you agree?

That the choice
Of staying or going
Of who I'm with
Can only be and
Is up to me?

Oh little girl
How little you know
The little boy is
Impatient with your games
He cares about you

And you're just driving him insane
His heart is broken
There are tears in his eyes
But, he's not afraid
To say his good byes

Leave you to play
With another boy
He's tired of waiting
For you to try
Out another toy

Making him just another ploy
In another one of you plots
Just a scheme
To make it seem
Like you still love him

Oh little boy
Stop letting her play
With you like a toy
And everyday
A new ploy

Every time she sees
Something new
And screams her plea
Of I just want to see
If its the right one for me

You try to give her the benefit
Through all your doubt
And keep trying to lift
Trying not to care about

Oh little girl
Stop playing your games
He played with your dolly
Didn't break it once
But, you broke his heart

Many a times before
But, you don't see
How evil your intentions can be
Just end it here, let him flee
To let his heart find some true glee

Oh little girl
Go home
Play with your dollies
Leave this little boy alone
To see what the world has got

Oh little boy
The world offers so much
Not much good
But plenty in store
Besides what this little girl makes you endure

So much more
What is her lure
That would make you endure
This pain that leaves you ever more and more
Sore throughout your heart's core

Oh little boy
Never will you see
The truth behind the lies of
Let's just see
And just maybe

Oh little girls
With their dollies
Oh little boys
With their hearts
Oh the reasons why they'll never part
