I try to be the good girl,
The girl who has it all together,
But I'm not.
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?

Don't dream of wearing a diamond ring.Featured Shared Story
I am like this. I do not want a prince charming in life. I am strong enough to take care of myself, and I will be independent as well. Super proud to be a girl!
Negative Comments Given To Teens

"Bags, books, your comb, and cream
Scattered on the bed with those jeans.
This is how you keep your room clean?"Featured Shared Story

Stream Of Consciousness
This generation would rather be encircled by people who encourage them to fight their brethren,
than encourage them to unite as one body.

Poem About Hiding Who We Are With Lies
Lies brush my lips,
they tell stories,
defend who I really am.
Lies will never let me down.Featured Shared Story
I can relate to that.
I do that to stay alive.
Everyone knows me as a story but the real person of me is deep inside of me.
Sometimes I wish they weren't lies but real.
