Social Lives

Hah. That's a joke!
When do you expect me to muster the courage, the energy, the time?
So much pressure:
Boys, girls, teachers, parents
I don't envy you sometimes.
Don''t ask me to get up- I'm a teenager, remember?
No-one understands me- the same old song to a new tune.
Angsty and aggresive.
Do I intimidate you?
My fringe in my face- wipe off that makeup,
There are other colours you know.
Smile please- say cheese.
Have a night out, what a laugh.
How about no?
I'm trying, really I am.
