On Turning 16


If you told me 16 years ago

that my life would turn 

out like this, I wouldn't

have belived you.


16 years ago I was innocent

I was free without restrants

I was happy. 16 years ago

my life was not this hard.


On tunring 16 I woke up

saying "my life was not 

suppose to be like this"

But it was.


You think you can cnge

yourself but, truly, you can not.

Other people change you.

For good. For bad.


As time passes with the 

tick of the clock. You wonder

what did you do right?

What did you do wrong?


On turning 16 my life is harder 

than most. It's okay though

it has made me who I am
