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.

    People think that I have it all,
    But they know nothing, nothing at all.

    This is a beautiful poem. The motif and imagery around it is simple lovely. I can very much sympathize with the statement that it is making.
