I’m not a typical 16-year-old teenager.
I care about others, and not myself,
one day I want to change the world
and I want to do it with out anyone stopping me
Telling me it’s to dangerous.
I want to live my life to the fullest.
That includes taking risks-
I want to take those risks.
I don’t care about boys, makeup, and clothes.
I care about my God, my family, and my country.
Is that to strange for a teen to say?
I dream to be happy-
I dream to be an inspiration.
I want to rise from the normal crowd
and I want to be separated from the pack
Not compared to the popular.
I want them to say, “She’s different. She’s original”
I don’t want to be another star in the sky
I want to be the brightest star.
I don’t want to spend the rest of my life alone.
I want to remember the good
and throw away the bad.
Give good advice to others,
Without sounding like a hypocrite.
I want my family to be safe.
I want my family to be happy.
Is this too much to ask for?
Is the price too much to pay?
If it is I’ll take it.
It will be worth it.
Watching them happy will be worth it.
Watching them be pain-free.
Watching them laugh,
and telling stories.
That will be worth it.
I’m a teenager who cares.
I am stubborn.
I am hard-headed.
I am shy,
I learned to smile through the bad times,
and to always stay positive.
I’m a weird, crazy, hyper, shy, unique, quirky, smart girl.
Learn to love all of that about me.
If you can’t move on.
I was happy before you,
and I can be happy without you.
I’m 16 years old,
and I care.
