Magazine, website & books written by teens since 1989


I'm tired of being friendly,
tired of playing nice.
I'd like to get away
for eternity twice.

For all the stupid drama,
confusing mind and heart.
Dragged into something,
I didn't want to start.

Being peacekeeper is hard,
knowing lies from truth.
Knowing there's no evidence,
no particle of proof.

I can't stand people,
but they're hard to avoid.
I'm exhausted,
and done being annoyed.

It's only getting worse,
never slightly better.
Am I horrible
Knowing they're bad together?

Some people are so bad that you just don't want to be around them.
They talk too much, carry too much drama and harbor so much hate and grudges.
I mean, seriously? Is it that necessary to get so upset over he say or she say?
This is a great piece.
Keep writing.
