Denney Youth Poetry–Call it Courage–When I Was Young

on April 20, 2007

Teen Boy

 

WHEN I WAS YOUNG

 

 

When I was young, I was a good kid

who got good grades.

Now I’m in Drug Court trying to get straight.

 

When I was young, I did so well in school

I never got Detention.

Now I’m sitting in Juvenile Detention.

 

When I was little, I did so well.

Now I’m struggling to get off the junk.
