(Dedicated to someone who doesn't deserve it aka Heather Hughes)

Today is not the end

and neither is tomorrow,

but this is the day

that I forget all this sorrow.

For I have tried too hard

for entirely way too long

This is something I have to overcome

and I will because I'm strong.

I am the man that I claimed to be

and this will be proven to you.

Now, it's your turn to show me

what it is that you want to do.

You want to be with me

is what you honestly say,

but you never seem to try

and that pushes me away.

And it really does hurt

because that's how much I care,

but I refuse to attempt this

if you won't help us get somewhere.

I can't possibly do this alone,

but believe me, I would if I could.

And if you truly want this to happen...

You will do what it is that you should.

(She didn't do what it was that she should have. Now she's pregnant with this guy's kid and he is set on having the abortion that she doesn't want)

I think I know who this poem is referring to, given the date and the message. You always said something like "Don't talk about it. Be about it". When are you going to take your advice?

(This part not to Jerry) No one cares what the first person on this page has to say (yes Jessica...I mean you!!) Anyways, thanks for the poem Jerry.

Heather Hughes's picture I don't deserve the poem??? That was a bit harsh...don't you think Jerry??? I wrote you one and I didn't go back after what happened and put "To someone who doesn't deserve it"!! I'm offended!!!

You've wrote a poem for everybody but me. What do I have to do to get a poem??

Ok. Why didn't you just tell me and Heather wh/ one was about her? I had to search 51 poems to find it. It was a good poem though. I think everyone has been in that situation before. And you seem to be in them time and again.
