Hi my name is Kimberly, a 9th in Life Academy i’m writing a poem relating to Romeo and Juliet. My poem is about a present version of them showing huge meanings of growing up and a struggle for teenagers in 2018.

[Juliet’s Pov]


I’m Growing up,

Through childhood to teenhood

School is a struggle there is nothing fun in it

Parents go hard on their kids as they grow up

Romance is strong aura that brings two people together

Romance is what teens talk and have now in these days

I don’t get the feeling I’m clueless

I heard there was a new kid

Rrrrriiiinnng, Rrrrriiiinnng, Rrrriiiinnng

Oh, class about to start

I went to class and sat down on my seat

I saw the new kid

He made my heart feel strange

He made my heart…

bump!? bump?! bump?!

He set a fire in me!

What is feeling? This is brand new to me?

He’s making me feel like I have butterflies fluttering in my chest

The temperature in the room is getting hot

Is it becoming an oven?!

I’m sweating!, I’m sweating!, I’m sweating!

Somehow you noticed me and came forward me after class

I was statue I couldn’t move

He said I looked pretty and wanted to ask me out

I said yes

How did this come true? he told me his name was Romeo

But I remember something


I have parents who want to to do what’s best for me

my parents don’t want me to date this young

I would get in trouble if they found out!




Stress… things around me, coming for me, what should I do? What should I do!?

I have responsibility of my own life now

Decisions hard choices that will affect life

Urgent I’m growing up each second time is wasting

I have Dreams of you Romeo…

of spending times together…

I don’t want to give it up

I rebel on my guardians for you because it’s all about you

I give them lies…

I do it because my parents wouldn’t let me do things that I want

I Forced myself to my disobey parents

Just for my dreams and life choices

Time goes fast, it never stops, it never waits

Together we keep this secret

Of our love aura

From our parents

Love is a drug that never ends and blinds me in every way

It has won me

I felt like I was in a fairytale

I felt like a princess and you felt like my prince

I hope nothing bad happens

I hope this never ends…

Dear kimberly,
I enjoyed reading your poem because it got me intrigued into reading more into your poem. I also liked how you used sound effects to make your poem more lively. Your poem was detailed and I could see the clear connection to romeo and juliet.

Dear Kimberly,

Thank you so much for sharing your poetry. A line that stood out to me was “I don’t get the feeling I’m clueless.” I really like the transition from not knowing anything about love and feeling, then not being able to leave once it was felt. I felt that it was beautiful and truthful.

A second line that was powerful was “I give them lies…” because it reminded me of the cheesy quote, “Love makes you do crazy things.”

A connection I made to your poem is “Urgent ,I’m growing up, each second time is wasting” ( added some comas.)

because with every second that goes by, there will always be something you want to do so you wont’t regret it later on in you life.

Your poem also reminded me of a life of a teenager . Usually not being or just being able to detect the feelings of people and your own.

I really love your poem and how it also shows how helplessly in love Juliet was with Romeo.

Thank you so much for writing and I look forward to reading your next post.
