Hello, my name is Monica Jordon I am 19 years old. I am a college student right now studying to be an elementary school teacher. I have had a lot of tough times in my life and I am trying to overcome them here is one of the poems I wrote.

Please Remember Me

As I sit in this bed just staring at the wall,
I hear those horrible dinner trays coming down the hall.

Tomorrow's the big day I go underneath the knife,
I find out if I'll live or if it's the end of my life.

I'm much too young to say good-bye my days are not yet through,
However it's not a choice I'd like to make it's something I must do.

I had so many more things I wanted to do before this day,
And now although I'm not ready to I have to go away.

I know things don't always go as planned, no matter how we try.
Things may happen people change and sometimes they may die.

If I could I'd stay right here and be right by your side.
Just please don't say that I gave up or that I didn't try.

The thing I hope you remember about me always is the love,
Please remember I'll always be watching you from somewhere high above.
