It’s SO unfair! You don’t understand!
You’re so old now, what do you know anyway?
I’m NOT having a tantrum! I am expressing myself!
Oh! Leave me alone and stop hassling me.

Whatever.

Yeah, it’s my hormones. Of course it is.
It’s nothing to do with you, is it?
It’s never your fault that you nag me
That you tease me; that you wind me up!
That you constantly criticise.

I never do anything right, do I?
According to you I don’t.
That’s what it feels like.
Only my friends understand me,
You know, the ones YOU don’t like
The ones you don’t ‘approve’ of.

I can’t wait to be grown-up.
I won’t be like you;
I’ll treat my kids with respect.
Not like you, always poking your nose in
Wanting to know what I’m doing,
Where I’m going and who I’m with.

It’s NOTHING to do with you!

Just leave me alone and let me live my life
Nobody tells YOU what to do.
Nobody tells you when to wash
Or tidy your bedroom or
Do your homework
You have it easy.

When I’m grown-up
I’ll be better at it than you are.
You just don’t understand
What it’s like being a kid.
You have no idea.

I hate being thirteen!
