Earthly Teens Abound - Poem by Samantha Williams

Teenage life is not secure,
There's always something there.
There's love, there's hate, there's even more
For teens to show you here.

We have our stress and this you know,
But what else do we share?
Our lives, our fears, our loves, our tears,
We share them through our years.

Us teans, we have our special tides.
When playing on a playground bright,
Or laughing with our hearts and dears,
Or crying from a fright.

Sometimes we teens relentless be
To teens beside us here, but even
Through the names we call we too
Are called in turn.

To some we're stupid, others poor,
And even hypocrites. Those names
Are cruel but teenage life is not
So pure or true.

Teenage kids want love not pain,
And friends to help them through.
Friendships come and go with us,
But many survive the bumps and hills.

We have addictions though different be
From one another still they be, like
Drugs and being nosey when we ought
Not to be.

Teens have their little groups who
They talk to quite a bit.
They love to spread their gossip
Throughout their tiny lips.

We talk of friends and teachers too
And what we think of them.
We say they failed, or that they
Lied about their ways and wills.

We as teens do have our fun.
We love our summers dear.
For summers let us have our fun.
We play all day out in the sun.

Teens love to use their cameras.
We love to stop our time.
Those moments captured last through all,
And remind us who we are.

Teens share so many common traits.
They play outside, they gossip, they lie,
They love and show their ways.
Just talk to one of us alone, you'll
See what makes us tick. You'll see
We miss the times that slip away
Throughout our time and space.
