Peer Pressure

February 10, 2008
By Jordan W., Portola Valley, CA

Defined by a world we cannot control, our words our often not our own.
We make plays for power not realizing how often our words hit home.
Approval of our peers drive us beyond limits we never thought we’d cross,
wanting to be seen we move against everything we have ever been taught.
Letting other people define who we are, because we don’t want the choice,
Not wanting to be alone creates victims of peer pressure, teens without a voice
