When I was a teenager I used to write poetry. I was a pretty depressed teenager to be honest. I had a lot of personal issues that I had to deal with, and writing both fiction and story-like poetry was definitely my outlet.

When I was in elementary school I took a poetry class.  It was a part of the English class curriculum.  We learned the history of poets and iambic pentameter.  I wasn't very good at the rhythm of my poems but I did tell a great story :)

Same here. My sister is a teenager now except she doesn't write depressing things, she writes gruesome ones! She once wrote a poem about a clown that killed old ladies at a carnival.

Oh, I used to write gruesome things too. Always trying to push the envelope. I am a naturally creative person. I have to make things, whether it be music, or characters, or draw, or craft things with my hands. I make things, and I think that that is a great thing when you live inside your head as much as I do. 

 

Ps: I want to read that poem ;)

I agree, it's always good to have a creative outlet for your thoughts. Especially if you tend to live in your own head a lot.

 

I read and trust me, it was hilarious if anything!

I wasn't really a very social teenager, to be honest. Other people are too difficult and still annoy me beyond talking to them online lol.

 

I have always been a creative person. I think that it is how I express myself because I am not good with words in person, even though I am a writing wizard lol.

Neither was I. I'm still not very social now and I'm technically an adult!

 

I'm the same, really. I find it easier to describe things by writing than by talking. I tend to ramble a lot when I talk!

Technically an adult lol. I love that expression. I have often used it countless times in my head. I am twenty-three now, but I don't rally see myself as an adult, and if today's idea of an adult is anything to go by, I never want to be an adult.

I'm 21 and I still don't feel like an adult, despite people around me insisting that I am! I don't want to be an adult either, to be honest. The again, I don't want to be a teenager either.

I loved poetry in high school. but fell out of love with it in college. I think I like it in waves. I have to be in an artistic mood to get into reading and writing poetry. I have written over 200 poems and I only post them online for strangers to read.

I want all the freedoms of an adult, but not on the obligations of an adult. I don't know when struggle became  a good thing or when it became noble. Life shouldn't be a day to day struggle, in my opinion. But our society has learned to accept that sacrifice is noble, which is ridiculous.

Twenty-six years young!

 

I won't grow up! (I won't grow up!)

No I promise that I won't! (No, I promise that I won't!)

I will stay a kid forever! (I will stay a kid forever!)

And get banished if I don't! (And get banished if I don't!)

 

I was never very good at writing poetry, but I would read it sometimes. My favorite ones were the simple ones like "This Is Just To Say" by William Carlos Williams.

It's kinda funny and odd to think about this... but when I was a teen I was really into writing poetry, even into my 20's I was still writing poetry. Some of my poems were nice, others were just meh!  My friend liked most of my poems :)  My taste for poetry died when my view of romanticism died out and was replaced for a more crude vision...  I think that happened when I was 24?  I haven't written poetry ever since, and I doubt I ever will... I'm too cynical for that... :blink:   Yes, so many bad relationships often do that... hehehe.
