I, too,sing the song of “another teenager”

I am the age no one wants to be

They send me to my mind that is sometimes to loud to think

But I try to block out all the noise

And push through the rest of “YoUr” today

And float into “mY” tomorrow


I’ll be at my calmest state of mind

When another singing heartbroken teen comes.

Nobody’ll dare

Say to me,

“Oh it’s because you’re 16 you don’t know what love is”



They’ll see how much or how little someone can take

And be bluntly astanished by the walls we create around ourselves to block out the ones who do love.

I, too, sing the song of the heartbroken teen.
