Where's my pen?
I need to write
Stressed
Beyond
A
Measurable
Amount

What's the essay prompt?
"Describe yourself"
I'm a mess
Scratch that
I'm
messed
up

It's funny, all this time I thought I was growing up
Up into that young woman I always wanted to be
beauty and brains
sweet as honey

I just wanted, no needed, someone to finally step in and save me
As the pressure
it mounted like the Andes

No one ever stops to worry about "Little Miss Perfect"
She has it together, girl knows how to work it!
Oh, the things they say
The praises that spray
From their lips
But hear me,
"I
DON'T
GOT
THIS!"
"I don't got this!"

This one's too big for me
College applications,
Are you kidding me?

Lock me in the loony bin and lose the key
I have officially been driven CRAZY
