It's not as great as I thought it would be.
I thought that in high school I could be free.
To be older and to have so much fun.
My life is set, though it hasn't begun.
I get so bored with the same old routine,
so tired always doing the same thing.
Sports are so stressful, and grades are a must.
Responsibility might make me bust!
I know what you're thinking; "stop your whining!"
But you couldn't handle what I'm trying.
Just want to graduate, a change of pace.
I'm so glad I'm almost done with this race.
I have Senioritis, so I've been told.
Why can't I once again be 5 years old?

That's really funny. For some reason every time I read your comment it makes me chuckle.

I really like this poem and I can definately relate. I've had senioritis for about 3 years, but up until now it's been called laziness.

Oh my gosh I know how you feel! I'm not even fourteen and I get so sentimental about my messy days. It feels like you need to be more and more proper and restrained as you get older. There's that self-concious thing, too. I wish I could be a teenager with the maturity of an adult and the heart of a five year-old.
