Short Poems by Teens

The shorter the poem, the more difficult it is to write. Every word must be exactly what you intend to say. There is no time for long winded explanations. Often it may take longer to write a short poem. You are more likely to write it and revise it many times before you feel that each word is perfect and perfectly placed. This may be analogous to a small family or group. There are not many people so each one much show up. Each one must do their part to create a loving family unit or group of friends. Every family member or friend must play their role to perfection.

They Leave Me Heartbroken

They take away my family
They tear us all apart
They try to erase the memories
But can't erase the marks
They cut me open
And left me with the scars
They left me with the bandage
But took away my heart.
