These are supposedly
the best times
of our life
but how can
4 years,
48 months,
208 weeks,
and 1460 days
dictate
our entire existence
when the roads we are destined
to take are covered in the
mistakes we've made
and the blood
that is to be shed
by the futures
we are yet to dread
is pouring
out of our souls
hallowing our hearts
and caving through the holes
what is the point of it all
if in the end
we will all just be
cold,
lifeless,
and dead

I love it! And it's true as well. How are we expected to enjoy being "teens" if our entire future rests on what we do? I can imagine someone going in for a job interview and the employer saying "Sorry. We can't give you the job because you got a C- in Art class." XD Good job!
