"The Stress Towards Teenagers," Eunice-Clara E.L. Primous, Ninth Grade, East New York High School of Transit and Technology

Being a teenager is kind of new

because there is more to worry

about then before and it’s not just school

It’s the adjustments and relationships we get into

The pressure that gets put on us everyday from each other

We don’t know whether to cry or run and hide Instead, we hold it all inside

until someone notices that something is wrong because we are no longer our happy jolly selves It may be hard to understand us

but we need some kind of support

With someone by our sides we are safe to take ones place

Walking around we always find another one who has acted in another way that we have

So we help them like the other has helped us Stress is something we all are at some point

but don’t let it get the best of you.
