Half Child, Half Adult

Half child, half adult
Never a teen

Mature thoughts, yet can't comprehend them
Wants to do so much, but does not know how

Why can I not express how I feel
I've lost all my communitcation skills
I'm stuck in a corner, thoughts racing through my head
And have no one to share them with

Look at those teens, How I admire them greatly
They don't let life stop them, why do I?
Why do I feel so indifferent from them?
What makes me so strange?

Half a child, Half an adult
Never a true teen

    The turmoil and fears of a young mind excellently portrayed.

    Awh. this is sweet. Keep it up Jessica. Look I can feel this poem, makes me think about life wanting to revert back to teen years and start over haha, but we let life keep going because it has to be that way.

    In an emotional quandry. Traversing from child to teen to an adult is very confusing and hard for some. Excellent write I enjoyed the read.
