It's Tough To Be A Teenager (Another Poem I Really Like And Its Totally True) - Poem by Courtney Lynn

It’s tough to be a teenage,
no one really knows
what the pressure is like in school, family,
Friends & relationships
this is how it goes
I wake up ever morning,
and stare into this face.
I wanna be good lookin,
but i feel like a disgrace.
My friends they seem to like me,
If I follow through their dare.
But when I try to be myself,
They never seem to care.
My mom, well she keeps saying,
I gotta make the grade.
While both my parent love me,
it slowly seems to fade.
It seems like everyone I know,
is trying to be so cool.
And everytime I try,
I end up just a fool.
I've thought about taking drugs,
I really didn’t want you to know.
But I just don’t fit in,
And It’s really starting' to show.
Maybe if I make the team,
I'll stand out in the crowd.
If they could see how hard I try,
I know they would be proud.
You see I'm still a virgin,
My friends they can't find out.
'Cause if they knew the truth,
I know they'd laugh and shout.
Sometimes I really get so low,
I want to cash it in.
My problems really aren't so bad,
If I think of how life’s been.
Sometimes im really lost,
and wonder what to do.
I wonder where to go,
Who can i talk to
It's tough to be a teenager,
Sometimes life's not fair,
I wish I had somewhere to go to,
And someone to CARE.
