You're Growing up too Fast by Demachic You're Growing up too Fast by Demachic
EDIT: It has been brought to my attention by a commenter that the 'randomly placed apostrophes' were throwing off the flow. :) So I removed em.

:iconhitlerwtfplz: THERE WILL BE NO PUNCUATION. This will be a continueing trend throughout the rest of my poetry. I've seen the light and old habits die hard.

Poem about people acting older than they are, or wanting to be older, not taking the time to enjoy themselves while they're what they are. =]

I'm 18 and always will be, unless you're, like, either Naota from FLCL or Tomoko from WataMote.

*slow clap* I love it. A lot of my friends/family/teachers/etc are like "Grow up already!" I have like, (hopefully) 60(?) years to grow up! Be young when you're young! And again <3 your poem~! :D

I totally agree. The ones who go out to party a lot try to be grown up and very fashionable. Most of the time, it's great to be young, because you don't have to blamed for many things and there's always someone you can look up to for guidance. Being the opposite, it's hard being a leader when you don't have much plans.

I'm afraid I don't agree with this poem. Having more responsibility can also mean having more personal freedom. Believe me, that's something some people really wish they had!

But I still like the poem. XD

I love your poems! They always seem to touch my heart. :)

I don't know how many times I've seen little children younger than myself dressed in clothes that make them look like little adults. It's even worse for teenagers. They not only dress stupidly, but they do stupid things as well. All to try to be more "grown up"... I don't get it... =__=

I dress comfortably so that I can enjoy my time as a kid! I see girls in my class dressed in outfits that just look painful and annoying to wear. High heeled shoes, shorts skirts, dangling jewellery... How are you supposed to play games, climb trees, and jump around in the mud on a rainy day with outfits like that?

I agree with you completely. Why some girls wear those god-awful, annoying,uncomfortable clothes puzzles me. I mean I'm a girl and right now I'm wearing an oversized T-shirt and basketball shorts. People need to stop trying to grow up so fast

Glad to know someone else agrees with me! :D You're awesome!

Sometimes I get comments like "You should dress more like this, you'd look pretty" or "You dress like a kid". It can be annoying, but most of the time I just laugh. I am a kid and just because a girl doesn't wear girly clothes doesn't mean they're not pretty. It's okay to focus on your appearance, but most of the time, girls who try WAY too hard to be pretty on the outside have an ugly personality on the inside. I think how we dress reflects on how we think of ourselves.

That's a great quality to have! I think more girls should be like this, not caring about what other people think. So many girls quit sports and activities just because they don't like how they look. It's ridiculous.

No prob. I know, it's sad that people have to pick on others to feel good about themselves. It would be nice if we could all just be more accepting. That goes for everything too. Colour, age, sexuality, etc. People are quick to judge and don't get to know the person. I admit that I do that sometimes, but I try not to. Even if a girl is dressing provocatively, I try to give her the upper hand until I see her do something that is rude or inappropriate.

I'm going to live my life now. I'm in the stage where I finished school and now should find a job or know what I want to do for the next years. People told me to find something I want to do for the next ten years. I said to them: "I have no idea. I learned for school a long long time now. I got good marks. I tried my best to please you and didn't live. Now it's my turn"

I have always wondered the same thing, but most of the time I'm the one wanting the days to rush by to this "date" or go to that "time" in the future. But I also catch myself reminiscing a lot of what it was like in the past and how much I wish I could go back, but the thing is I'm still a teenager! XD I think that's just what the human race does...constantly wanting to go forward but still remembering the past :)

This reminds me of how kids of like eight years old are 'dating'. It's like serriously. Your YOUNG. Act like it. Dont waste your life doing somthing that isn't going to work out yet.
Also, lovely poem <3
