I’m not lost but I don’t know where I’m going
No scars but my pain isn’t slowing
I’m not dead but I’m certainly not alive
I say I’m happy but I continue to cry
I’m a child but also all grown
Surrounded by friends but really alone
I’m not broken but I’m not complete
Not really tired but completely beat
I’m neither here nor am I there
I feel confused but I’m completely aware
Being a teenager is never good
You have this ache because you’re misunderstood
Yet in the future it’ll all be clear
I’m afraid now but I have nothing to fear
