High School Existence

Consuming the fruit

Of fruitless pursuits

Social online in our rooms

Pose for others

Hope for acceptance


Ferry other’s opinions

Eat less, workout

Wear the right clothes

Live for others

Survival, Enjoyment, Future

All at odds

Yet fitting in


Trek in fog

Catching glimpses

Peripheral present

Future hidden
