This collection of poems will take you on a journey through the teenage years that are difficult, challenging, hopeful, romantic, creative, fun, chaotic, scary, and filled with adventure. The author wrote this poetry from his heart as he learned about himself and the world, pushing past awkwardness and tears to find that hero-like inner strength. He confronts the most perplexing questions of all, those that naturally foment, collide, and converge on a teenager. A teenager that is caught up in the world of school, friends, and the realities of our global Internet age. Each successive poem strives to make sense of a segment of this grand adventure. This poetry proves that you don't need to have either super-powers or magical abilities to survive the teen years. With effort, insight, voracious curiosity, and a little wisdom, you can do it in style!

About the Author
My name is Alexander Veneruso, a seventeen-year-old finishing my senior year in high school as of the publishing of this collection. I am a proud geek, spending much of my time playing or designing games of all descriptions, and run a Minecraft role-play server - How much geekier can you get? The majority of my poems deal with my slow journey to adulthood, as I ask questions, ponder my past, and try to understand the world around me. I found that putting things down into words helped me think through these things, and before I knew it, I had well over a hundred poems completed. You'll learn a lot more about me from reading the contents of this book than I could ever tell you in this brief paragraph. I hope you find it to your liking.
