You will never be a teenage mother
or a teenage prodigy.  
No teenage kicks excusing drunken antics;
you are no longer a teenage dirtbag.

You will never break world records now
or have a distinguished academic career.
You will never be head girl
or swing your schoolbag hand to hand on sticky summer days.

You will never again be innocent
you have nothing left to learn
and you feel you know so little.  
You don't have the excuse of youth

nor the wisdom of age
to keep you safe from prying eyes
and mocking tongues.  

You will never know young love again
or suffer for sneaking out on schoolnights
and you will never sneak in underage
or stand outside defeated.

You will never again be 'far too young',
yet still too old to dream,
and never again will you be forced from the room
for the grownups to talk and you to idle.

No, you will never again be young:
now that you have learned to be young
you find yourself at sea; old.  
shitbiscuits, I'm twenty somehow :S


Critique meeeeee

Yeah but it gets a bit pathetic after a while. I want to do them all quick before it gets a bit old!

My friend Joel once cried on me that he was 24 and wanted babies in the middle of a bar, he just put his head in my lap and sobbed. It was a bit of a quarter life crisis.

Hahahaha. It's funny that woman always talk about their biological clock, but men get it too. You can't imagine what it's like until you're there. I never wanted kids. Because I was a free spirit and I was poor and I had too many crazy genes to want to pass on and I just didn't want them. But then one day I woke up and was like BABY!!! :D And I was crazy and delusional and on lots of drugs so hell I got pregnant without even knowing it. But when I looked back I realized I'd only been taking my birth control about ever other day. WTH?!?! How did this happen?? But I'm glad. I sat on the bathroom floor and cried with joy because I was so glad. I was totally broke and I didn't love the father but I didn't care. I had a little tiny blueberry-sized baby inside me.
