Teenager's Enemy

She always used to say,
“School is for learning not for socializing;
if you make friends it’s a bonus.”
She always let me chase down my dreams,
and pin them to the ground.

She always used to say,
”I wish you were a nerd;
then I wouldn’t have to deal with boys.”
Now, she’s happy for me
when my boyfriend comes to dinner

I love when she tells me,
“you’re the young lady I always hoped you’d be.”
Because I know I haven’t disappointed her.

She always used to say,
“School is for learning not for socializing;
if you make friends it’s a bonus.”
And she was right,
because sometimes all I needed,
was her.
