Being a teen, isnt all that it is cut out to be,
You have no money, and nothing is ever free.
Your parents are always, on your back,
and during school, you get off track.
Guys this age, are inmature, (some, not all)
And for zits, there is just no cure.
they say, "these are the best years, of your life",
But to me, these are the years of strife.
your friends are quick to turn away,
when they see a guy, any day.
you want the things, that you can't get,
all and your clothes, seem to not fit.
your parents think, grades are all,
and if you're bad, someone will call.
you wanna experience, everything bad,
and anything you do, makes the parents mad.
they always seem to call and yell,
what mood their in? there's no way to tell.
there is a dance, but you aint gotta date,
and if you do, you better not be late.
it seems you parents want everything but fun,
and with my curfew, that'll never get done.
being a teen, isnt what it is cut out to be,
because it seems i have to please, everyone but me!!

This is to the poem seventeen. I am 16, and trust me, it aint no bowl of cheeries!!

it's been quite a while, but i remember it well...my teenage years then seemed to be pure hell...us "old folks" meandering down memory lane...sometimes that's needed to keep us sane

PS: have you checked out the teen forum?

Being a Mom I have to respond to a teenagers plea. We try to understand, but fear for your safety makes us crazy. The world's forever changing, and that scares us. Makes us put up more barriers to protect you. It's our motherly duty, but more it's our love for our children that makes us blind at times to what you feel are your rights as a teenager. Love is what makes a parents clock tick, and that's 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for the rest of your lifetime.
