Currently

Its hard growing up now and days
So much is expected of you in so many ways
Everybody wants to judge you, but no one wants to help
They'd rather obsess over your life than to concentrate on themselves
You try to please others, but realize its useless
And it seems that reality is always out to prove you clueless
You want someone to love, but manage better on your own
If loving him is right, then you don't want to be wrong
Sex is an addiction, a vital necessity
You can barely make it through the day without craving that point of ecstasy
But what about love, trust, and commitment
All of those things that are soon followed by resentment
Crazy are these thoughts that plague us
Causing confusion and trying to phase us
Trying to eat at us from the inside out
Making us scream and shout...and cry
Seems like nobody cares, but you don't know why
All you know is you and you only
Maybe you should get to know someone else so you won't be so lonely

    This is a well-written poem, I enjoyed reading it today, you expressed each verse in your poem so well, I thought about the times when I was younger and growing up, resentment hurts but Sheri long as you know you are doing and treating people right then be happy and know that you will make it. Good write
