Hi my name is Wendy and I am a 9th grader. In class we read Romeo and Juliet and we had to talk about a topic that was relevant in the book connecting to the real world. I talked about how love is a misconception because of everything people are willing to do for love. Hopefully you can leave a few comments to help with my writing thank you.
Love is a Misconception
Don’t you love someone so much?
You love them even when you were hurt badly.
After the hard times,
The white rose turned black.
Being in love made my heart cold as ice.
I remember all the dark nights with no moonlight,
Despite the long nights,
brought the sunrise.
I got no love
I tried to be perfect,
but like the prettiest roses in the fields,
I got cut off.
“My love for you, is like a rose, it never dies, it only grows”
We fall in love and get used,
Like the roses you have in your counter
until they rot and they crumble.
All I wanted,
was a real hug,
To feel comfort and safe.
All I wanted,
Was someone to be by my side.
I kept everything encapsulated for too long,
Having the rainfall drown me and as it dried up taking all the feelings away.
In a world that is so fake I just needed something to feel,
I wouldn’t be here.
Trapped in my mind I would feel pain when in love.
I wouldn’t be me without you,
I always cared for people,
who didn’t care about me,
So don’t give up on me,
Don’t rip my heart right out,
I might disappear.
But if I do,
In the endless forest I will find myself,
After a dangerous storm
The light will shine the clear path,
and help the flowers blossom.
And like the flowers
our broken hearts will blossom together.Tags: #9thgraders #Romeo&Juliet #Shakespear #yourvoicematters Life Academy of Health and Bioscience
