"You can go your entire life without food or water, but you won't live very long" -Shane

I was with a couple friends
Swimming in a lake
And we were having so much fun
We'd stop for no one's sake

And that is when one of us found
A Giant Turtle Shell
And through a bit of more searching
We found the rest as well

Oh, please don't eat me giant turtle
I'm just a young boy
Please don't eat me giant turtle
Sorry if I annoy

Now I am quite paranoid
About this turtle thing
And now there is not much I do
Except stand here and sing

Then I fin'lly faced my fear
And got back in the lake
While I was lifting up some rocks
I saw a giant wake

Please don't eat me giant turtle
I'm just a young boy
Please don't eat me giant turtle
Sorry if I annoy

Then the turtle came to me
And said, "I hate that chorus.
Besides you've got the facts all wrong
I'm actually a tortoise."

I like the twist at the end. Great job.

To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.

This poem was very executed. I like it very much. Let me know when you post another one. I love your work!

"In the end, it's still best to wait for the one we want rather than settle for what's available. It's still best to wait for the one you love rather than to settle for the one who's around. It's still best to wait for the right person, because life's too short to waste on the wrong one."

hahahaha this was great!!! I needed this :)
