So I was on Facebook (just like everypony) and I stumbled upon a little blurb that was placed into an image. It was talking about being a teenager. It was talking about all the feelings you feel in your teens for better or for worse.
My teenage life was less than perfect. In fact if I were to describe it...I would say it was beautifully broken. I went through a lot and overcame even more. Even with that said, I still have the best time of my life. I have so many fond memories of my teenage years.
Now I know I am acting like a sage perhaps...after all, what sense does it make for a 20-something-in-America to say things like this? Well I was thinking about that blurb and it got me to thinking about a song in Thai called 14 Eak Krung (trans: 14 Again). The speaker is talking about how being in love with a particular girl made him feel like he was 14 again (or rather specifically, the feeling of being in love for the first time.) This got me thinking...what I wouldn't give to be 14 again. This poem is to my 14 year old self which I could be him again. I really didn't know where to take this poem or where I wanted it to go where I wrote it. I just kind of wrote it and let it go from there.
