I am the Result of proper upbringing

combined With reckless Abandon and bad decisions.

I am the poster Child for responsibility

Aside from the occasional immature Whim.

I Am the desire For parents, A conditioned child

until I become Utterly undesirable.

I am mindful And Thoughtful of my actions

but For when I act like I Lost my mind.

I care for my friends and family immensely

though One lapse in Judgement can hide That fact.

I will restore your Faith in me dozens of Times

before I Diminish it again in One fell swoop.

I am a Duel Role model: for the ideal youth

and for the youth in Revolt.

I am an Enigma.

I will please and Disappoint.

I Will fill you With pride and Shame.

I cannot Be defined by one Action.

I will keep You guessing...

until I mature

until I have children of my own

until I have to govern them.

I will then be the one guessing

and scolding them for their unpredictability.
