old head on young shoulders
in all but years
i was so much younger
than i appeared to be –
oft repeated an old head on young shoulders –
i did not understand the expectations placed upon me
based on people’s perceptions of my maturity.

Who else can relate to this? i used to think I was so smart growing up and superior to those my own age because I was apparently an old head on young shoulders. This was while I was completely confused by children my own age because I did not understand them or was unable to relate to them. My social skills were awful! Being naturally shy and anxious too I was terrified of being the centre of attention.
