Am I old or am I young,

I know not what I am.


My mother says I’m an adolescent,

I know not what it means.

They say I am neither a child nor an adult,

I know not who I am.

People say it’s a difficult age,

I know not what they say.


All this talk makes me nervous,

About the future.

I know not what I am to be.

For nobody knows

What the future holds.

…now that you’re here
