Happy, sad, sleepy, mean,
Feelings often change,
a common act of a typical teen,
I find it rather strange.
Talking to a friend,
or sending them a text,
They talk for hours on end.
They’ll leave their room a mess
and give cleaning it a miss,
but yes I must confess to also doing this.
They think their folks are ancient, and utterly unfair.
The result is to ignore them,
before they start to swear.
Their music cracks the ceiling, and makes their parents fume.
Emotions always reeling,
and spend more time in their room.
Being a teen may seem pretty bad,
but from experience I can tell
it’s much worse for mom and dad.
It's a living hell!
