Favorite Quote:
My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. - Maya Angelou

Every time I think of saying something

I begin to be shy

then I fade away


so I am Doing it the old fashion way

Writing a note and passing it on

It seems that’s all I can do


Today I take a step

I have never taken before

It all starts with a jersey and an answer

On a very special day


So I ask you today


On homecoming day


If the answer is NO

Just throw this away

And don’t tell me so

Cause I will know


But…..If the answer is yes.

Come and find me

I shall stand by my locker

Oh number 374

and when I see you with this note in hand

I shall know

oh but still please Tell me so

and than...

on homecoming day

I shall wear your jersey with pride

on this very homecoming day

maybe just maybe

it will be different

cause maybe

I shall be there

I am very shy girl. altough think myself to be very pretty. sometimes it is hard for me to get others to see that. and there is guy that likes me. I believe anyway. i think just maybe i may like him to. my sister agreed to give this to him. 

if anything happens.... than will... this poem will be most treasured to me.
