Ah, growing up, it's a terrible thing to do...;)

A teenager’s angst…


Teens do experience anxiety,

As long as they, if they are female stick to propriety,

If they are male they may find themselves fighting sobriety,

Life they say is what you make it; such is its variety…J


Been quite sometime since a teenager I was,

Never did more in school than get a buzz,

Wish now that I used what I had,

Still in all high school is just another prison,

Teens forced to attend as per governmental commission…L


Worrying about the future,

Remembering the past,

How do we treat our folks?

Now that we have discovered our own path…J


Life is worry,

Life is change,

Life is worth living,

Life can be at least quite strange…J


Enjoy your time in the sun,

Keep yourself moving and on the run,

With your friends and family try to have fun,

Don’t race to find that special one,

He or she will come along when least you expect it,

You will know right then and there this is right; you have won…J

This has gotta be one of my fav's of yours Ed.
Inspiring to say the least...

One good thing about an education is that it is something no one can ever take away from you. Sometimes I suppose it does feel like it is forced upon us, but it is one of the most important things for shaping our future. I don't believe that I have ever heard anyone reflect back and say that they wish they hadn't had a good education. All that aside, kids need time to be kids, too. Good write, Ed.
Take care,

Good poem and very reflective of life as we know it. Yeah, the government does force us to classrooms. I'd hate to see the nation if they didn't. Wait! I do see it. It's happening today. Kids still have to attend classes (sometimes) but no one gives a rats ass if they learn or not.
