As I grew up I learned that even the one
person that wasn't supposed to hurt me did.
I had my heart broken more than once
and it was harder every time.
I have broken hearts too,
and I remembered how it felt
when mine was broken.
I have fought with my best friend
and I blamed a new love for the things
an old one did.
I cried because time is passing too fast
and I will eventually lose someone that I love.
So I will take too many pictures,
laugh too much, and love like
I've never been hurt because,
every sixty seconds that I spend
upset is a minute of happiness
I'll never get back.
I will not be afraid that my life will end....
I will be afraid that it will never begin.
