Everyone tells you,
they’re the best years of your life.
The thing they don’t tell you,
is they are all full of strife.

From a child to a teen,
in less then a year.
It’s a lot to deal with,
you have to grow up fast.

As a child you’re free,
as a teen you feel locked up.
A child has no worries,
A teen has a lot.

You learn the meaning of love,
you discover broken hearts.
The worries of being accepted,
are the hardest part of all.

What’s the best
about these years?
When as a teen,
you live in fear.
but life as someone
looking forward to the future
