Too Old to be Young

I am a teen,
And as a child I am seen.
I am trapped by my age,
As if in a cage;

A cage of my years,
It can bring me to tears,
For no one can really see,
Who is really me.

They pretend to listen,
Though the point they are missing.
They pretend to understand,
But in the end they can't.

It is as if their minds
are truly deaf and blind,
For it's not really mysterious;
I just want to be taken serious.

Simon Cowell feedback--you asked for it!

 

"I am a teen

Why must I be seen

Like this;

trapped by my age

As if in a cage

of my years

Brining me to tears

Nobody ever cares to see

Who is really me

It's not that mysterious;

I just want to be taken serious."

 

Do you think those changes make it better, worse, the same but just different?

Just the same but different, I guess. Maybe better. I like it either way, but since I wrote it I'm a bit biased. Anyway, I was asking you for your opinion. What do you think? (Please don't answer a question with a question, even though I just did.) :P
