Poems about Teens

A plethora of changes and the need to make many life-altering choices can make your teen years tough to get through. During your teen years, you will begin to find out who you and how you fit into the world around you. It is a time marked by emotional ups and downs, first loves, broken hearts, high school, homework, and a new found sense of freedom and independence. For some, teen life is the most difficult and sometimes darkest time of their life. For others, it is the highlight of their entire life.
