Vow For 2008 - Poem by Geramie White

Used to be, when I was a little child,
I always wanted to protect my sisters and my mother,
I wanted to be someone everyone could depend on,
Later I found out though I grew up strong,
I'm still weak,
Dealin with permanate scars from the past,
Letting others the best of me and cast me aside,
Asking myself is this really who I am?
Is the rest of the days of my life is going to continue in this negative pattern?
I was too soft and too kind for this world,
It hurts me to know that I can't control whatever happend in the past,
But I going to forget those painful scars,
And move on without looking back,
I will become a better man,
In order to protect the ones I care about,
I have to protect myself first,
So this is my vow for 2008,
To become way better than I was before...
