Growing pains,

self refrain,

don't let them see you smile

awkward and gangling limbs that trip

you slip up, spill stuff, blush and slip twice

you kiss your hand, you practice in the mirror,

but the fear of interactions grow so

you curse, you smirk, you show them your best

best of what? imitations?

of self respect?

go through life in such a blur,

teenage years felt so bitter sweet

searching for the constant nature of the beast,

and craving self validation

what do you seek, little adventurer?

is it adulthood that you chase?

while you're after something more than youth,

don't let that imagination go to waste.
