Being Teen


Being teen is about life as a teenager.

-
I am a teen
I hate my life
I love my life
I want to die
I want to live
I want to feel
but I hate catching feelings

I make mistakes
I get acne
I get teased
I hate school
I hate to study
I pass sometimes
I fail sometimes
Sorry for not being a perfect student

I love the internet
I love television
I love junk food
I don't eat healthy
I don't exercise
Sorry for not being like a model

Some days I like to lock myself in my room
Some days I like to be around just friends
Some days I like to be around just family
Some days I cry
Some days I smile
Some days I fake a smile
Some days I can't control my hormones

I like to keep my feelings to myself
I like to keep my thoughts to myself
I will not be nice to my younger siblings
I will not stop expressing myself when getting yelled at
I will not be your perfect child
I will not stop being a so called slob
I will not stop being a teen till I'm 20
Sorry, Not sorry for simply being a teen.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
