    About Being 17

    I was a late bloomer, at 17 I never had any boyfriend yet. Not because I have no suitors, I have a few but none that I liked. I was picky, because I wasn't looking for good looking guys but what was more important for me then was the connectivity, or shall I say compatibility...

    I Learned The Truth At Seventeen.

    I learned the truth at seventeen, that love was meant for beauty queens. And high school girls with clear skinned smiles, who married young and then retired. The valentines I never knew, the Friday night charades of youth, were spent on one more beautiful; at seventeen I learned...

    I Think I Remember Being 17

    At least I hope I remember being 17, I know I was scared of what the future would hold. I look back now and wish I had been more daring and less worried of what others thought. Surviving another day of school, going to work and hoping there was enough time left over after...

    Everything changed during the age of 17 for me. Every year that I've grown older I've asked myself what the best age to be is and every year I've thought it was the year I had just turned,except this year.This year 17 still feels like the age I'll always want to be.

    17 And Miserable

    When it came to the year of my 17th year on this planet it was pure miserable. Life was totally miserable yet life had no real meaning as well. It was a time when those who were family did not care. My care giver finally gave up on me and could not farm me out to those who might...
