Being 13


Being 13,
My parents expect me to do so many things.
They give me responsibility,
that I don't really need.
Saying I'm becoming a woman everyday,
but when I want something I'm too young they'd say.
Juggling all of my classes,
barely making straight a's and b's at the moment.
Trying to sort out my feelings for so many others,
asking myself is this love, should I write them a letter?
Feeling so confused about all the people that I've met.
Being 13 changes a lot of things.
Can't stop thinking about how bad next year's gonna be.
When I turn 14 more things to figure out for me.
I don't even know who I want to be.
Being 13 I have lots of questions on my mind.
Like when I go to college I know I'll have a hard time.
Being away from my mom and family.
Isn't going to be easy.
Being 13 I have a hard enough time picking out my shoes.
In a couple of years I have my insurances to choose.
I don't know what I'm going to do.
Before I know it my life will begin to shoo.
I'm so scared as life is approaching me.
Sooner or later I'll have to pay some fees.
Being 13 I'm overthinking everything.
