I CANLizzz@ 16 - See how much I have changed in 8 years and read

 I Still CAN after this one...

Can You ever tell a woman off who revealed all of your fears?

Can you ever crack a smile when your whole face is in tears?

Can you ever dislike someone and bottle it up deep inside?

Can you ever push your feelings back and find them a place to hide?

I can.

Do you ever try to tell someone you like them but never do?

Do you ever try to tell a lie when they know its not true?

Do ever recieve a secret and will keep it 'till you die?

Do you ever read a poem and it makes you want to cry?

I Do.

Are you the kind of person who cares for all living things?

Are you the kind of person who wishes to grow wings?

Are you the kind of person who sometimes likes to be alone?

Are you the kind of person who is always on the phone?

I Am.

Would you ever care so much for someone your tears form when you see them cry?

Would you ever search for an answer when something makes you wonder why?

Would you ever take a bullet for someone special that you love?

Would you ever stand in a line and never try to shove?

I Would.

Will you ever stop and think about where your life is?

Will you ever stop and anylize," Who the hell is Liz?"

Will you look back ten years form now and see the mistakes you did?

Will you wake up tomarro and wish you were still a kid?

I Will.

I (still) Can  Lizzz @ 24 trips around the soler system

Can you ever crack a smile when your whole face is in tears?

Can you tell a total stranger all your deepest fears?

Can you ever keep your sadness and push it way down deep inside?

Can you admit that you are wrong and hang your head up high?

I Can.

Do you ever want someone else to like you the way YOU do?

Do you ever try to tell a lie then admit that it's not true?

Do you ever want to fly away to the deepest void in space?

Do you accept a simple hug wipes sadness off your face?

I Do.

Have you accepted life's not easy but you love it anyway?

Have you kept yourself awake at night afraid to face the day?

Have you always wanted to make people happy because it returns to you?

Have you wondered why people are so DAMN happy when you are sad and blue?

I Have.

Should I be so happy that I don't care when people think I'm dumb?

Shold I remind myself I'm not alone I'm NOT the only one!

Shold I tell people how wonderful they are and KNOW that it is true?

Should I be the one to brighten YOUR day when I feel I can't get through?

I should.

Did I find this Earth to figure out why it's even here?

Did I find out that everything is based on Love and Fear?

Did I finally appreciate EVERYTHING thats EVER happened to me?

Did I cry when I found out it was all meant to be?

I Did.

Will you ever stop and think about WHAT life really is?

Will you ever try and anylize, "Who the hell is Lizzz?"

Will you look deep in the past and SMILE from the mistakes you did?

Will you LOVE the world around you just like when you were a kid?

I Will.
