"THE TENDER YEARS"

Rate: 1 Flag

Bubblegum and soda pop -
Garish make-up, painted nails.
Gossip that just never stops!
Exaggerated, embellished tales.
 
Bushy lacquered long hair -
On the phone so late.
Hoping the girls won't stare.
Wishing the boys ask for a date.
 
Worrying about making the grade.
Always so insecure and shy.
Such a lonely masquerade.
Hopelessly searching for an ally.
 
All the crushes that went nowhere.
No date to take to the prom.
You realize your such a square.
Always arguing with your mom.
 
So fragile these tender years.
Not knowing what you really want.
Wasted days spent in tears!
And your peers, they only taunt.
 
Where did the time go?
Look at you now!
What do you have to show?
The past you must avow!

"What do you have to show?"

Yes, yes, the eternal question of materialists - even when not meant materially - it's part of the culture.

Ask another: Why is "what you have" important to you? And why on earth is it necessary to "show" anything?

You've done that which it was yours to do in the circumstances in which you found yourself. Is there not sufficient satisfaction in that? Can you not continue to do that until contentment finds you?
