Suburbia

I've tried
Believe me I've tried
But nothing is good enough for you
Why are you pushing?
Why are you so sad?
Whats with all the pressure?
I'm just one kid
I can't handle it
I don't know where my life is going
I'm still figuring things out
Heartbreaks and strange feelings are weighing me down
You are the girl that can't take a compliment
you had so much potential
I'm hopeless and lost
You are not my guiding light
I want to give up but i can't
It takes everything left in my to carry on

Wow awesome poem. You said it right- I'm just a kid, still figuring things out. Well said. I liked the way this poem was talking about being a kid and the struggles. It is all true.
