School Poem

This was written for a school project. I always enjoyed write poetry, so tell me what you think.

Wow. Pretty much a summary of how I feel right now. I'm at that point in my (high school) life where I'm confused...I don't really know who I am/will be, and it seems like nobody understands....

A Typical Teenager

©

Published: March 2011

To be a teenager in a world like this is not as easy as some may think.
Nothing comes easy; life passes you by just as fast as you can blink.
Stepping into high school, is like stepping into another world
There's peer pressure, sex, violence, and too many fights to imagine.
People, who you thought were your friends, are the ones you mainly end up fighting.

To be a teenager in a world like this who the people here, just isn't fair.
They will seem cool face to face, but when things go wrong, they act as if they don't care.
They will judge you whether you're doing something good or doing something wrong.
Talk about you, or even laugh in your face as if you're some dumb song.
You got to be careful who you call your "friend"

To be a teenager in a world like this is nothing new.
Just because I have never done drugs, doesn't mean I'm not cool.
I barely get into it with people around me.
But, just because I'm not a fighter doesn't make me weak.
Mama always told me to think before I speak.

To be a teenager in a world like this is what I never thought I'd be like.
Me focusing hard in class, and making good grades is not as easy as riding a bike.
Some, who've seen me, may think I'm quiet.
But, that doesn't mean I don't speak up for what's right.
I'm just a regular teenage girl who's just trying to make it out of high school alright.

Wow. Pretty much a summary of how I feel right now. I'm at that point in my (high school) life where I'm confused...I don't really know who I am/will be, and it seems like nobody understands. Some of my "best" friends are leaving me out for no apparent reason, and I'm discovering who the real friends are. I guess reading my thoughts on this computer screen has helped me put things into perspective and realize that what I'm feeling is something that others feel. People do understand. It will get better. I love all these poems (:
