I don't really care about algebra II.
I think going out is moreimportant than cleaning my room.

Imake mistakes.
I don't think things through.
I won't admit it but I needhelp.
Please understand,
I'm just growing up.
I laugh when youdon't.
I do things you never did.
I do things you never would do.
Pleaseunderstand,
I'm just different.

I have questions.
I question you.
