16

Life at 16

Pleasure and pain
Jumbled in a riot

Drink to death
Death to dorks

Mushy crushes
Passes

Radically
Emotionally
Repressed

Utterly alone
Black deathes

Fast cars
Slow dances

Roses and chocolates
Love and hate

Of smiles and stabs

Life at 16: confusing

Yes, life can be confusing, at any age, but especially in the teen years. You have caputured the turmoil of those years well in this piece!

ok i saw this one in the list and thought...oh my gosh somebody is writing about my families favorite number!!! boy was i wrong...LOL. I remember life at 16 (wasn't too long ago for me). You described it very well. I like how this thing says so much yet in so few words.

 Did you ever read about a frog who dreamed of being a king, and then became one?

I'm not sure if I can remember that far back but it sounds familiar...absolute total confusion!...hmmmmm, still seems the same now..

HUGS

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.
