Am i ready

Am i ready to give away something valuable to me
Ready to say yes and take the risk of getting an STD
Ready to forget to use protection and become one of millons of pregnant confused teens
Am i absolutly sure, do i even know what ready means
I know i'm not ready for this
But i do care for you , more than you will know
I do want to be with you , even if i don't let it show
i'm just not ready to commit myself right now, i'm still young i got my whole life ahead of me
Am i ready to give up my hopes and dreams, no of course not
Am i ready to fall into timtation and lose all control
The answer is NO I'M Not!!!
