About the Poem
I wrote this poem because it is exactly how I feel about growing up. You have to grow up fast these days. It's like you go from a child to a teen in less then a year. The reason I wrote it is because I wish to warn others that the hardest part is being accepted by your peers. Don't let people make you afraid to be who you want to be.

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.
