Adolescence(A short poem).

Updated on November 11, 2010

Through a clouded pair of spectacles

You begin to seek life.

Before you know what's out there.

Before you know your minds eye.

You live in the now

and forget what's ahead.

You make impulse decisions,

and your common sense you shed.

No responsibilities for anything at all.

Family and money mean very little

of which you see no more.

Just living on your instinct

to do what you see fit..

Knowing whatever you come across

will not bother you not one bit.

You float like a feather.

through your teenage life.

You swim only in the deep end

forever rolling the dice.

You regard nothing as your own,

including your many mistakes.

You give me your words and promises

of which I know you that you will break.

Your world spins at a 100 miles per hour,

yet you do not get travel sick.

My only wish for you my love

is that something finally clicks.

That you find what it is you are looking for,

So you can settle down.

I hope you get your train on track

and learn to swim before you drown..

The life I always dreamt for you,

The one where it's destination was clear.

The life in which you will pick for yourself

I hope not one that I will fear.

      Hi, I have not logged in for a while but I have recently seen your messages and I am sorry that I have not checked them in a LONG time. I thought you're piece was beautiful and I am so honoured that you chose my poem. Thank you for that. I am starting to write again so I shall have more poems shortly showing up on here. You compose beautiful music and I can't wait to hear your next piece.

      Just to let you know, I used your poem in my music video, since you have not answered. I gave proper credit, but if you're against me publishing it this way, I will remove it of course.

      Adolescence is such a trying and risky time. Your poem captures the struggle.

      There is always hope.

      Lilmissbookworm, we do have hopes, dreams and desires for the children of the world. Let's hope they will listen. Thanks for putting this poem together to challenge us and our adolescence.
