Poetry Corner: “Nothing new”

Although you may not know it
by your first passing glance
I , too, know what it’s like
to be with no chance.

I, too, have been there, done that
as far as life goes,
and maybe I’m young
But I’ve had me some throes!

Just ‘cuz I’m smiling
Doesn’t mean I don’t fear,
you may have forgotten
no one knows what is near.

I, too, have worries and doubts my friend,
and made some mistakes
but this I know to the end…

…I am young but not naive
of life and some if it’s tricks
and I will continue to say this
until something sticks.

That although you may not see it
by your first judging glance,
I can show you what I know
If you give me a chance.
