Just a Kid

They say I’m just a kid
Not even eighteen
Sometimes I feel like a kid
But sometimes 
I feel like an adult
They think I’m immature
I don’t have what it takes
Sometimes I feel broken 
Like I’ve had more than I could take 
Maybe I got too much too soon
They say I’m not ready 
For the real world out there 
Well who’s to tell me what I can take? 
How am I supposed to be ready 
Without going through something?
And given the chance
 I never would have taken this path 
But God gave me the path I’m on
And it forced me to grow 
So maybe I’ve seen more than you think 
And maybe I’m stronger then you know 
And maybe the pain I feel now 
Has shaped me to be like Christ 
And maybe in the moments 
When I lose control of myself 
There is a small piece of my heart 
Wishing that my biggest problem 
Was keeping my temper under control 
And maybe when I cry 
Over the silly things 
It’s because deep down 
I’m longing for my innocence back 
And when I laugh 
I appreciate it more than you think 
Because I’ve known what pain is
You say I’m just a kid 
Not even eighteen
But I thank the Lord 
He allowed me to grow
Without saying I was too young 

1 Timothy 4:12
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

Just so ya know, while this poem is based on me, 'they' does not refer to my family at all. My family is the coolest. 

Also, speaking of my family, Happy Birthday to two awesome people.
