Please Read the Following
Jane, Age 13, Beijing, China

People are too busy running up & down
Doing something important, something big

And yet they won’t read their memories
Nor will they remember

They’ll say, no time for reading
They’ll never even try

But if you do read mine,
Please remember to go back in time,
Time you wasted, time you used
Not worrying
Maybe, not at all

Time you spent by writing yourself
Promising that you won’t ever forget
What you wrote,

Some like pain,
I don't

Some like tears,
I don't

Pain makes memory, some say
Tears record memory, some say

And I don't remember

I need someone
Who can read my thoughts
Who can listen
Who can understand
Who can stay
Who can be my
true friend.

Is that too much?
