Sad Poems by Teens

Sad occasions can bring families and friends together. Sad times, such as death, sickness and loss in a family or friendship, or a family member or friend who is going through a particularly trying time, call for family and friends to come together and support one another. In this way they can comfort each other and help make a sad and difficult time that much easier. If they do not come together, not only have they left a family member or friend unsupported, but they have also lost out on an opportunity for closeness.

    Why in my world the sun sets in the east and doesn't rise at all?
    The blossom on the trees don't fall and embrace the ground as snow would in winter.
    The birds don't sing and raise you up out of bed in the morning,
    They scream and make you curl up in bed at night....
