Written for: Poetics Aside 2018 November PAD Chapbook Challenge – Day 10
Write a teenage poem.
They insist that you are their
Enemy, opposing every word you utter,
Except when they need money. Funny how angry voices
Negotiate in softer, reasonable tones,
And we fall for it every time.
Growing constantly, changing appearance frequently, and
Ending up their own person with morals you hope
Reside in them as adults.
