So many choices to make
Wondering which paths to take
Always feeling like you have the pressure
To be the best at taking a venture

Worrying about what you look like constantly
And believing that you always look very poorly
Staring at yourself in the mirror and picking out all your flaws
When you should be looking at your self in awes

Being stressed out with sports and school
Trying to do your best so you don't look like a fool
Always arguing with your siblings
Then figuring out that they truly are blessings

In fear that you will disappoint somebody
And make them very angry
Hoping that you will become something very important
So that when your older you can may an impact that's very brilliant

The author's comments:
I wanted to write a poem that not only I could relate to but that all teenagers could relate to. Teenagers have many stressful things that they have to go through and we need to realize that were so young and we should be enjoying life instead of trying to be a perfect person.
