Poetry club for teenagers called Girl’s Room ( for girls) & Voice Male ( for boys)
Do you want to be connected to some contemporary poems based on the teenage experience? I invite you to comment on a poem that I have written based on my time talking to students. There are issue poems on matters of the heart, as well as everyday school, family and friendship topics. From bad experiences to good experiences, poetry can help keep you together. It can provide an opportunity to express your fears, concerns and joys. I hope you find these poems meaningful as they help to make sense of the world around you. Perhaps you can identify with one.
Good luck! If poetry is not your thing, then try writing down a simple diary entry. It’s not that hard to turn it around and make it a poem, not always rhyming of course!
Elegant space of limb and grace
Rhythmic poise and promise
with tunes so timeless ever flowing
the dances begin their warm up –
stretching, bending, twirling,
muscles moving like a shimmering moon
movement fast ; a spectacle of swaying and emotion
mysterious, joyful and surrendered.
This is my wish for you daughter dear
a life of happiness but not without a tear
Courage to face the hard road ahead
A chance to find love and maybe wed
a special friend who shares your joy
and one day perhaps a baby boy
times may be rough along the way
Hold fast to your dreams every day
Here are a few exercises to help get that creative brain working in the right direction for creative writting. See how you go, there are no right or wrong answers here. I would love to see what you can come up with!
Have fun and see where it takes you!
Looking out the window seeing the balls fly high
soaring like a bird into the blue, clear sky
The game is in my heart every hit,
whack! and serve
scoring to a glorious win
the slam , game set, I deserve
Tennis – it means the world to me
my passion, speed and might
controlling the dashing ball
I care about your experience. Please fill in your details and I will contact you shortly.
