All I Want Is Respectok. i'm not 18. that doesn't matter. compared to most adults i am more mature. i have common sense and know what respect means. no adults should be tellin me what to do or what choices to make. i know what i'm doing. i had to grow up already, something i'm convinced most of the world never has to do. you don't see me pushing my problems onto others. you don't see me tellin you what to do. i'm a person, not a dumb little child. i will not do what i'm told unless i tell myself to do it. i deserve respect. if any grown-ups out there want my respect they better damn well earn it. i'm not a kid and i'm tired of being treated like one.
to my wonderful dad- this is part of why i got mom to divorce you. you were hurting all of us
to my loving grandparents- my body, my tattoo, my choice
to my teachers- you are not above me if you think you are
to anyone who disagrees- **** you. you aren't worth the argument
to those who understand- thank you
this is not meant to offend anyone and if it does that just proves my point that you aren't grown up either. i'm not a kid. i'm a person. treat me like it or ignore me completely. but do not look down on me, and do not talk down to me. i don't look up to you or think of you as better because at the very most we are equals and that's it.
