1. My Future
They want me to be prepared
For the future that is near,
But the truth is I am scared
Because mine is unclear.
Every family has hopes and aspirations for their children. Some may long to send their children to college if the parents have not had that opportunity. Others may aspire for a better life in another country. Sometimes there are conflicts between the dreams of the parents and the dreams of their children. Parents may have labored so that their children could have what they consider a better life only to have their children choose other options. This can be heartbreaking for the parents who may think that they have labored in vain, and stressful for the children who have their own dream to live out.

I'm getting older now,
No longer a child,
Not yet an adult,
But a girl trying to carve a path for herself
Wow, this poem is amazing! Growing up can be very scary and unpredictable, but it has to be done. I think the unknown of it makes it so beautiful.

You were always there to protect me
through the dark and cold of night.
I would hold you close beside me
and squeeze you in so close, so tight.
This poem linked with my current phase. A teddy bear is a non-living thing, but when I start telling him my daily stuff, it seems that he listens and the solution to my worries is the big...
You make me feel empty
You make me feel sad
You make me feel like I have lost everything I had
I can relate. I'm a 14-year-old boy who just wants to hang out with his friends and sometimes by myself. I have good grades, and people say I'm a good, well-rounded boy, but I'm growing up....
A silly girl
Loved a stupid boy
He was her everything
She was just his toy
I also was a silly girl in love with a stupid boy that lead me to become a single teenage mother. I prayed everyday for 9 months for god to bless me with a baby boy. My mother walked out of...
See me cry
See the truth behind the lies
See me smile, see me laugh
See the flashbacks of my past
It touched me by the way the author wrote it. He states in the last line "see me be shocked" and what touched me was in the poem that the girl was angry at the parent because the parent left....
There once was a little girl.
She was sweet, and in dresses she liked to twirl.
Everywhere she went,
She left her footprint.
This poem was able to help me do songwriting for the first time. The words are relatable and really flow nicely. "Little Girls Have to Grow Up" is the best poem I have ever heard. I'm not a...
What happened to the good old days?
Back when my life was full of joy and happiness?
Back when my world was a beautiful place to live?
Back when people loved one another and everyone smiled?
The Good old days were the Best of all which it is just too bad that they're all gone today.
