i am a teenager

October 16, 2017

i am a teenager

i get moody

and i swear

but i deserve no less respect than you

when i want to know something

don't tell me i'm "too young"

don't tell me i cannot love 

because i am "too young"

don't tell me i won't understand

because i am "too young"

let me do things that i want to do

let me wear things that i want to wear

if i am not harming myself or others

you do not need to worry about it

 

i am a teenager

i have private things

i need privacy

please let me have it

in a couple more years

i'll be able to vote

but now i can't even dress myself

in a couple more years

i'll be leaving the house

but now i can't even run to the gas station for a pack of gum

in a year i'll be able to watch r-rated movies

and play m-rated video games

but i've already been told no

i am told not to sit around the house all day

but when i wish to leave

i am told no

when i am told not to be shy

and told to socialize

when i speak of a friend i wish to see

i am told no

i am no longer just a child

so please stop treating me like one
