Naive 16

Oh!naive sixteen,you've grown 
Big like a mountain yet deserve 
The kindergarten.
How you make me surprise,
Why become like merchandise that the 
Trousers buy?
Most you become the prey?
Pray you stop being the prey
For the glamor you pursue like a
Police after an accomplice,
Will help you not.

Oh!naive sixteen,the scent of limousine 
Driving you crazy,making your brains lazy,
Making your dreams shattered,tattered,
And wittered like a dying plant on earth.

Oh!naive sixteen,now you are sixteen,
Before you become twenty two in this 
Ugly infatuation,you might perish or 
retire and re-great.

    It's all part of growing up. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. My sixteen year old girlfriend is still my 63 year old wife. At 16, Everything was a temptation. Regret is a tough emotion. Vince

    i think all 16 year olds are naive but they think they know it all and see things only in the way they want to see it. I enjoyed reading all of your poems Charles and let me know when you have posted more. Thanks and have a wonderful day. Off to make supper. God Bless Phyl
