Hey everyone- I don't know where this one came from, I just kind of related it to my life, I guess it rings true....but I dunno you tell me.  Keep in mind, please, that I was bored when I wrote this.

How It Should Be

Iím lost
In every meaning of the word
Completely lost
Of this I know you have before heard
So many thoughts
Run in my head
I wonder
How many times has this been said
Fear
Runs all through me
Anxiety
And something I canít quite see
Is this how it is supposed to be
For a girl
A girl like me
True
Young I am
Young I might be
But still
Many things trouble me
Some adults
Donít seem to see
That all of a young life
Isnít filled with glee
They forget
What itís like to be like me
They forget
Or just donít see
Maybe this is how things should be
Or maybe it isnít
So how bout you
tell me?

*sigh*
what I wouldn't give to tell you Bel!
I know how you feel and the world just always seems so cynical
I guess people just don't understand
how truly hard it is to be a teenager huh?
Keep it up, it was great!
Love Always

My wonderful little friend....that is exactly how things are supposed to be.  Isn't it funny how youth is wasted on the young and wisdom is wasted on the old.  By the time you get stuff figured out, you're too old to care or do anything with it....wierd.  As lost as you are, you sure can find yer way long enuff to put it on paper nicely.  If you wanna talk sometime, my aol screen name is JerMan19  I think I should change that now...I'm 20 (duh)
I could also give ya my phn # if ya wanted to call sometime...I'm good with giving directions to the lost.

This is very nicely written Isabel! So many emotions and thoughts you've worked through. I do remember these feelings so well myself, even though it is many years later.  Some of us do remember and understand ... but it would be wonderful if we all could.  

Wonderful writing Isabel ... keep up the great work!  

Best wishes,
/Kit
