Life as a Teenager

I'm so confused about life
Its seems no one understands me
I feel that my parents are in a different world
They want me to be perfect
Sometimes I like to do fun stuff
Every thing seems wrong to them
I always have to get a punishment
Because, they take away my freedom, dreams, memories
And people that I love.
I wish they could be me at least for one day
So they could understand how I feel and
The problems teens go through now,
I know they would never understand.
Us teens now go through a lot of stuff
That are parents never went through,
Life back then for them was easier
Than now ……
