Many young girls leave home and put themselves in harm's way because they don't want to follow the house rules or they turn 18 or 19 and feel they are too grown to follow house rules.



You’re out there running free, living in the street
Dancing to the rhythm of your very own beat                

 Running too fast, girl, you better slow down

All fun and laughter, thinking like a clown
You’re smarter than that, girl, turn your life around
 
I’m free, I’m you grown, you yell and you shout
I can do what I want, I’m going to sprout    

Is this your definition what life’s all about         

 
You can smoke, you can drink, even visit a bar
Think about it, girl, don’t forget who you are
Running with the in crowd, think you’re so cool
No directions, no rules, you don’t even need school
Turn your life around, girl, you have the right tool
 
Living life in the street
Dancing to the your beat
You’re out there dancing, running here and there
Make sure the dance you’re dancing, lead you somewhere
 
Somewhere with some directions
Somewhere, you don’t lose you
Somewhere, you see the great things that only you can do
 
You left the comfort of your home
They expect too much from you
Now that you’re out here, do you have plans for you
Think about it, girl, to yourself be true
 
Is this fast and fun life the only way to go      
All good times and laughter, I don’t think so
You deserve a better life, where you can learn and grow
Give yourself directions, give yourself rules
To make it in this world, you need rules, you need school
 
Fun and laughter, self abuse, free to live wild

If that’s the life you’re living, you’re not grown, you’re still a child.

Mary,
You care when so many adults don't, don't want the stress of arguments, discipline, being called an ole witch ...or worse.
In admiration,

John

A wise message to pass along to all young girls if they will stop and listen....

Be always safe,
Karen

The voice of the power in the poem is us. The one being spoken to is us one or more generations removed, only with the face of the future. Provocative.

Kids today are growing way too fast. Sad! And what's worse is that a lot of parents don't give a rip. That's even more tragic!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

Sobering poem!

You offer good advice, Mary. Having taught in a senior high school many years, I have seen what happens to those girls who "get lost in life" way too soon. Love and blessings,

Regis
