I wanted to write something quick and not too complicated, so I wrote this short poem. This poem was actually inspired by a joke I made the other day and I came to realize, oh my god, I actually do feel like that a lot. My teenage years are coming to an end and hopefully my overly emotional hormones will calm down, but until then, I'll continue to write about my overly exaggerated feelings. Enjoy.
