The Ballad Of Adolescence

by Josey Healy

It's all so perfect,
So Normal and keen,
It's like a perfect puzzle
And then there's me

My parents
So successful
My cousins so smart

It's like I don't belong
Like they bought me at Wal-Mart

Unwanted, unloved
Deep down I know it's not true
Well, if this is adolescence,
Then adolescence
Is blue
