growing up

being a teenager is hard

for the reasons that everyone knows, obviously

like school, falling out of love, making decisions

but also the little things you loose from your childhood

reading a book and being so engrossed you stay up all night

being excited for a field trip the next day and having the time of your life

not worrying about what you were going to do in class

listening to sad songs and not understanding how they made you feel

i dont want to grow up

no one really does

i dont want to have to write a paper because it’ll get me into college

find my way home with my keys in my hands so i don’t get hurt

worry about how my parents are doing

these are things i cant handle on my own right now

how do people do this

how do people make it through this
