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.
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…
