    Great poem. The ending really caught me off guard and made me chuckle because it’s so true.

    I never do this, but here goes…
    Young girl, don’t cry
    I’ll be right here when your world starts to fall
    Ooh
    Young girl, it’s alright
    Your tears will dry, you’ll soon be free to fly
    Ooh

    When you’re safe inside your room, you tend to dream
    Of a place where nothing’s harder than it seems
    No one ever wants or bothers to explain
    Of the heartache life can bring and what it means

    When there’s no one else, look inside yourself
    Like your oldest friend, just trust the voice within
    Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way
    You’ll learn to begin to trust the voice within
    Yea
    Oh

    Young girl, don’t hide
    You’ll never change if you just run away
    Ooh, woh yeah
    Young girl, just hold tight
    Soon you’re gonna see your brighter day
    Ooh

    Now in a world where innocence is quickly claimed
    It’s so hard to stand your ground when you’re so afraid
    No one reaches out a hand for you to hold
    When you look outside, look inside to your soul

    When there’s no one else, look inside yourself
    Like your oldest friend, just trust the voice within
    Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way
    If you will learn to begin to trust the voice within

    Oh, ho, yea
    Ooh, oh, yea
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    Oh, yea
    (Ooh, ooh,ooh)
    Life is a journey
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    It can take you anywhere you choose to go
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    As long as you’re learning
    (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
    You’ll find all you’ll ever need to know
    (Be strong)
    You’ll break it
    (Hold on)
    You’ll make it
    (Be strong)
    Just don’t forsake it because
    (Hold on)
    (No one can tell you what you can’t do)
    No one can stop you, you know that I’m talking to you

    When there’s no one else, look inside yourself
    Like your oldest friend, just trust the voice within
    Then you’ll find the strength that will guide your way
    You’ll learn to begin to trust the voice within

    Ooh, yea
    Young girl, don’t cry, I’ll be right here
    When your world starts to fall
    Yea
    Aaa
    Yea
    (Listen)
    (Listen)
    Oh yea
    (Listen)
    Naa naa naa
    (Listen)
    {Listen}
    Ohh yea
    {Listen}
    Hmm hmm
    {Listen}
    Yea
    {Listen}

    It always reminds me of you. As ever, Pete. X

      I googled and it was the song i thought it was, very powerful…but it made me wonder…just how often do you listen to it? lol I havent heard it for years and now im having images of you singing along whilst washing up ha ha xB

        No, I never play music when I am washing up. I just hear it on the radio occasionally, and since I have been blogging, I think ‘how appropriate, for a certain person’. I do like Christina though…As ever, Pete. X
