Poems about Teen Life

Poems about Life

The adolescent years are turbulent and unsettled. Poems by teens can be so dark that it may be painful for others to read. Mood swings are common, relationships with parents, siblings and friends are full of ups and downs. One day they are your BFF and the next they've turned on you. Constant arguing with parents over boundaries and priorities can make parents look back fondly at even the terrible twos. Love and relationships enter teen's lives for the very first time, choices regarding sexuality, promiscuity, and responsibility are all new. Is it any wonder that teen poetry is so intense?

Being Secure With Who You Are
  • By Annabel Lee Winters
Fairytale Girl

I'm not that girl who's loved by all.
Don't wear dresses or go to balls.
I'm not the kind who likes to sing.
Don't dream of wearing a diamond ring.

I've watched the movies
A hundred times.
Promises of a tall, dark,
And handsome
Boy in disguise.

But I know there's more out there
Waiting for me.
My dreams come in
A different variety.

My blue jeans,
My sneakers,
My hopes and dreams
Have a fairytale ending
Just for me.

So goodbye Cinderella,
'Cause I'm on a roll.
Don't need a prince charming
To have or to hold.

The way I am is perfect,
No doubt in my mind.
I'm different, I guess,
And I guess I don't mind.
