I can't help but wonder
Why so many people see
In almost every teenager
Such bad quality

The elderly say
That teens are arrogant and prone
For our mistakes we never pay
We seem to be worse than we've ever known

The adults think
We should act mature
But be treated childlishly and our reputation shrinks
Yet this is not all for a teen to endure

Kids believe us to be
Role models and brilliant
Yet mean and cruel, and we see
How our reputation is so resilient

Through all this I can't help but wonder,
Just what category do teenagers fall under?

Story of my life. I completely get it. About time someone wrote something like this. I tried but couldn't piece it together quite right.

Nice job
