Author: Barbara Goodhew


Everytime I got close to someone they would leave.
Growing up I believed,that if you show you care you get alot of grief.
Everyone I cared about one by one they would leave.
At the end it was just me

I had to put up with her. I longed for the day I could leave..
I finally did only took with me the impression.
"Do unto others before they do unto you"

I never let anyone to close,now I know that was the wrong thing to do.
I'm not going to do that anymore" No pain no gain is a good expression.
