The Life Of Past And Present - Poem by Lola Romero

never had no one but myself to blame

i had a bad time in the third grade

some of the memories beginning to fade

no good looks but a whole lotta brains

got a hurting in my chest

right where my heart should be

all the while i did my best

to keep going, taking care of me

no one to cherish me

so i fought for myself

tried to make it good with wealth

all the while no one to hold

to tell me to stay strong

to keep me smart and bold

everything going wrong

skin feeling so cold

till i grew old

couldnt keep myself strong

and then i looked back on the past

back to my mask

back to those times that i was living halffast

and i see how much has changed

how much of my life

has been rearranged

and i am thankful

cuz now i am living and im feeling so free

its good to be alive, its good to be me

some things are not the best

but im living for the rest

dancing under skies of blue

i can stand and i can smile

and its true

all the while never knowing

my conciouse never showing

wat i was missing

was friends like you
