The Thoughts of a Perfectly Imperfect Teenager

All Rights Reserved ©


"Life has its ways of casually throwing heart-stopping, gut-wrenching catastrophes in your face, but in the end, we all have to save ourselves." - Emmalina Hi beautiful people. I hope you're doing okay. These are my thoughts on life, it's my story, which I hope will give you courage and hope in yours. I speak through the hearts of thousands of teenagers, for the lost, for the broken, for the hurt. I'm a teenager. A normal teenager, trying to find my identity in a place where people reject me for who I am. In a world where I have to figure out the difference between being right and doing what's right. In an ocean of people, where I have to push past the current that is trying to form me into someone I'm not. In the universe, where there are a million different stars that shine at night. Sometimes, it takes moments of darkness to ultimately bring out our moments of light. Stars are all unique and special in their own way. Just like me and you. I search for the good in everyone, and somehow, I find it. It's there. You just have to learn to see it for yourself. You can't change the world if you let the world change you. May you take the seed of kindness and hope I am giving you to bloom into something brilliant and spread it on to others. ----------------------------------------- Added to @WattpadAnthologies Nonfiction Reading List -----------------------------

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem. It made it easier to read, and made the unimaginable easier to comprehend. What some people may skip over may be the most important part in this...

anabanana0329: This book is great if u are interested in Greek mythology.This book is a good book to read.The chapters are very short.But they talk about side gods that aren't the main ones.Its really cool.And I love it very much.

Fabia Scali-Warner: Wow. This works reminds me of Allen Ginsberg, and at times even Prevert. The arching storyline is interesting, but I loved the care given to every verse. What a gem!

Terri: I love this story, the characters, and flow. I can’t wait for Lisa’s story, what happens with Adele. Will she get to stay? Can’t wait for next story.

brOKen_gurl_here: I loved this book so much! I would read it when I was feeling any emotion, I would read it when I was supposed to be sleeping, I read this book because it had me on a hook. I love this book!

Irene: I like the story plot..the characters itself and I love the author writing suits me

Amanda Lynch: There are a couple loose ends that I feel should've been handled by now. Additionally, some of the time jumps don't make a lot of sense. What happened at Eric's birthday party? When did they let Tempo go? Why does she have such a weird name?

cathrine: Overall I liked the poem, it's style of sync and especially the emotions.

alicia: As always I love your books, just finished all your completed stories and I can say it made waking up today a lil bit more special. Thank you

heironymousridiculous: Do I love you more because one of your parents was a narcissist? Or was it always that crumpled, refracted, white trash inheritance besieging my negative attachments until I’d eaten up all my carefully rationed self-esteem? Of course I was insane with hunger. Of course you never meant to hurt me ...

Deleted User: I love the poems written in the book. Each poem is unique and emotional. The imagery of the poems caught my attention. I love the comparisons made. Would highly recommend everyone to read it.
