Teenage Angst

Teenage Angst

If you tend to be secretive and crave a private zone,
yearn to denounce your family and set out on your own,
at first they’ll cling like mistletoe, refuse to set you free.
You’ll think they’re never going to simply let you be.
But time will set you free. You’ll see your family disappear,
and that is when I’m fairly sure, you’ll wish that they were here.


Prompt words today are family, denounce, secretive and mistletoe.

      Thank you very much. Guess most of us know it by experience. Mine wasn’t a sense of anger–just a sense of intense embarrassment over the actions of my parents! My dad knew it and acted up on purpose.
