If This Is Teenage Angst
I hope I struggle with it forever.
If being a teenager means finally understanding the world around us,
Finally taking off the rose colored glasses
And seeing clearly how cruel life truly is,
If teenage angst
Is being unaccepting
of the fact that
We have been lied to,
for our whole lives.
The real stories are ugly.
The princess is depressed,
that’s why she sleeps so much,
And the prince that saved her really raped her.
At these revelations
Is Teen Angst,
More people should be
