Just In
for Growing Up

That's very nice. I know how that is. I think it's always best to really think things through, think about all the consequences, think about all the people involved, and then make a decision based on that. But a large part of a decision is inevitably out of your hands, as sometimes you can't see the possible consequences before you or someone else is suffering under them. You just have to believe in yourself, I suppose. That may sound sappy, but it's the truth.

Anyway, that was a nice poem, and I liked it a lot. Keep it up! :)

Nice to read one of this type of piece that isn't unremittingly gloomy for once. And you bring out well the uncertainty of that age, when you want to rebel against what your parents tell you, but are unsure because you still think they might just know what they're talking about. After all, parents *do* know what it's like to be teenagers; they've all been there themselves!


Only one small complaint: you want "fewer" rather than "less" in the first line - the rule is that you use "fewer" for countable objects, and "less" for uncountable ones, eg "fewer cars" but "less traffic". A lot of professional writers don't seem to know this rule, though, so you're hardly alone! =:)

That was a really nice poem. I like your "PS" too. It's nice to hear that once in while!
