Teenager

No longer a child
Not yet an adult
Trying to find my place
Trying to find a home
Find where I
Belong

Don't judge me by
My blood
Don't judge by flesh
And bone
If you must, then,
Judge me
By my heart
My intentions

Feeling like I'm wasting away
This town's going no
Where fast
And they tell me and tell me
Again and again
That this
World's coming to an end
It's only a matter
Of time
What if
Time's on my side?
I choose
To live this life

Don't judge me by
My blood
Don't judge by flesh
And bone
If you must, then,
Judge me
By my heart
My intentions

I want to change the world
Even if it's by one heart
One person at a time

My eyes are bloodshot
My mind, exhausted
My cramping wrist
My heart, still dreaming

This one get's a thumbs up from me. I enjoyed its suttle flow and subject matter.

I remember my teenage years...only slightly removed...you capture the rapture of that tough time in life where judgement seems so harsh and nothing makes it better...4 stars!
