Reality Teen TV - poem

Gossip & parting as a Senior
Dirty floors, pee green water fountains
Is this what High School is really about?
Is this how life really works out?

Sore right arm, a back ache & a half
Flat feet, a runny nose
I don't plan on working here forever
Making 6$ on Sundays with no real lunch

chorus: Abandoned with my music, messy room
What's to life but work & survival
Nothings gonna be good enough
My mind is running naked
Maybe that's why I'm cold

Sink is filled with dirty dishes, the toilet is clogged
She's screaming but I'm calm & laughing
All the T.V.'s in the house are on
With the same things on the screen
F**k family bonding, I'll do it alone.

An earring here, a stain there- is in
Pink stripes & blue dots chase me
30$ lipgloss costs more than my shoes
What has the world come to when a dollar means more than a moment.

Abandoned with my music, messy room
What's to life but work & survival
Nothings gonna be good enough
My mind is running naked
Maybe that's why I'm cold

I can't stand how things have come
Everyone wanting to be like everyone
They don't care what's real,
but they know that reality T.V is "Reality."

I found out you survive on your own not with a crew & their s**t
Passion & love is more than that ring that is said to say it
Why can't I just be me
Cold, hungry & entertained

Abandoned with my music, messy room
What's to life but work & survival
Nothings gonna be good enough
My mind is running naked
Maybe that's why I'm cold
