Shame is
When you go to get your hair cut and all they have to do is brush it
When you see the commercial to talk to your phone and you find yourself yelling at “it” at the shopping mall as if a robot.
These are the signs of bad times
To detest is
When you leave out in an outfit for a date in sun-
shine
And come back
drenched in rain
When you know on that dreaded test you should
Put A
But you don’t and you fail that darn test by
one point
These are all signs of bad times
Suffering shows that
It’s when you
call your friend
and you
find out she left you out a-
gain
That’s when you know these are signs of a bad time
And to think this is a bad day for the
Average American
To think
these are bad signs of one teenagers time

I really liked the way you put these examples of bad times. It goes to show that everyone has those bad times. But that's when you realize that those hard times can be times for learning and growing and making yourself a better person.

Thanks so much! I really never do poems, in fact this was my first poem. And yes, adolescent years is a time for growth and learning, just like you said. Thank you again!!
