Cruelly Sensitive

Fearful and Anxious Teenage Poem from my 18yo Self

Photo by author

This poem was originally written in 1991, when I was in the twelfth grade.

As most teens do, I found that time of my life difficult as I tried to find my way into the adult world.

It took several more years for me to find my place in the world, if not another two decades.
