Change Poems by Teens

Poetry about Change

Dealing with changes is challenging. Especially in our teen years when it seems like changes are unending. Sometimes, we fight to hold on to what we were while, at the very same time, we fight to let go of what we were. That said, change shouldn't be feared. Changes are a beneficial, healthy part of growing up. You might lose something good in the process, but you will most likely gain something even better. People, places, and feelings always change so don't resist it. Embrace change, and life will always offer you something new, different, and interesting.

    I blocked out happy and I blocked out sad.
    People told me to open my eyes and see what I could've had.

    Round and round went my misunderstood world.
