Pimples, growth, and weight,
emotions, pitch, the rules change.
suddenly emotional and not understanding why,
suddenly indestructible, and getting into fights.
parents now seem so uncool,
grades start slipping,
you get warnings from your school.
people start to look at you in very grown up ways.
adults start making excuses: 'they're just going through a phase.'. feelings that nobody cares.
going to parties, no more innocent musical chairs.
you get your first kiss, you experience passion.
your social life starts to climb, starts becoming a distraction.
your mind is changing you're body evens out.
but no matter what, you can't figure it out.
all the gossip and the laughing,
all the witnessing attraction.
all the lies and all the truth,
makes you start appreciating your youth.
because it's gone in no time,
and i can't think of another line.
