I'm still Young

I can't decide what I want to do in life
its so stressing sometimes
I think I might run out of time
But, then I think about it and say
"I'm still young"

Who do I love?
Who do I despise?
I shouldn't be thinking these things,
should I?
wait a minute
I'm still young

I'm not wearing enough makeup!
Aren't I supposed to look like her!?
I look so different from everyone around me
they look so much older
I know I can't worry about that!
I'm still young

The author's comments:
I wrote this because so many teens are trying to grow up to fast and I think we can only be this young once. We should enjoy our time as teens!
