Enjoy your youth

It only gets harder when you get older

?The fun you used to have will no longer last

Drunkards run around calling the good decision makers outcasts

The bad in the world begins to outweigh the good

Deaths and gunshots can differ depending on your neighborhood

Peace where you live will not always last

Mess with the wrong people and later you'll be asking them to sign your cast

Honest hard working foreigners are always getting deported

If life is like a box of chocolates

then why isn't it assorted?

Some people don't know why I speak these words

They can't see what I see

?To them it's a blur

Some kill the innocent

?to prove they are mature

but having a bright future cannot always be assured

When we are young

we wish that we are older

Then when it happens

we wish that we are younger

Who you become it all depends

I said it once and I'll say it again

Enjoy your youth

?When you get older you'll soon get sick of it

It doesn't get easier

If it did then I wouldn't have written this



?A/N: I hope you enjoyed this (I can understand why if you didn't). I know this isn't my best poem but I wanted to write one so badly because I haven't written one in nearly three months. It's not that I've been busy or anything I just couldn't think of anything. For now, this is the best I could come up with. I promise my next one will be way better:)
