Teenager's Wish - Poem by Sam Arjomandi

I wish adults could accept I’m intelligent and wise
I’m tired of my parents repeating lectures and advice

I wish my teacher knew, I hate doing so much homework
If I have to see anymore of these stupid tests, I think I will go berserk

I’m handling lots of stress as a student at this age
I feel like an animal, trapped in an interlocked cage

My parents want me to be a doctor or a lawyer
Because these careers have a lot of buyers

It seems, it doesn’t matter what you like any more
All that matter is which careers pays more

For right now, I don’t care what is going to be my major
I just want to be myself, an active and playful teenager
