“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe

Dear Adults,

You guys suck.

You’re mad at us

Because we’re not stuck

We have our whole lives

And yours are almost done

You resent us kids

Because we’ve barely begun

But yeah, I understand

Your lives are hard

Life has messed you up

Left you broken and scarred

But you need to get it in your brains

That we are not the same

Life will not destroy us

We know it’s not a game

Yes, you protect us

Get to tell us what to do

That’s because we’re just kids

We never think it through

It’s really not fair though

Because we’re not so far apart

If we could just stop fighting

It’d be better for your hearts
