Adolescent Ways

Aging are many people,
Insecure and adolescent.
Afraid to take that step,
To another stage without regret.
With a facing to experience,
What comes next.
Yet kept are childish expectations,
For an attention to get.
As if to express such selfishness,
Is a deserving concept...
Connected to a tantrum.
And regardless wherever to whomever,
They display their disrespect...
These aging kids and their adolescent ways,
Don't perceive themselves as pests.
But participants with their children,
Competing in contests...
To display immaturity and irresponsibility,
With a proving who can do it best.
