My Dash

From the day I was born
To the day I die.
I want people to know
Of me.

For the love of shopping
In which I have.
And my poor eyesight in
Which you can see.

From New York to NC
I’m more than I can be.
From where I pack my
Bags and head on down
To where Leslie is really me.

Writing is my life
But I love more, ya know
I got my family and my friends
Yet I got a love for dough.

The matching clothes
And the clashing shoes.
I love to go to the mall.
And reading books all through out the day
With a Happily Ever After All.

Risma’s my friend
And Alexia of course
My friends who I love so much
Who convince me with great force.

So If I was to die today
I say I love my life.
I want them to agree with me
And say I lived it right.

My life will not end right now
But start a new way.
So as I live my new dash,
I want you to Know
Leslie is here to stay.
