The Seasons of Growing Older

Growing older

Is like a tree

You start out little

Then you grow

You branch out into your hobbies



Then leaves come and go

Some green

Other yellow

It’s like fall

They represent new beginnings

Every time you lose leaves

It’s the start of a new time

Once they come back

You’ve got a different thing

A new school


Or obstacle

Growing older means more responsibility

Some get it at a young age

Others struggle with it

Along with responsibility comes independence

Some have too much

Or to little

It’s like winter

The snow comes and goes

Some winters are worse than others

You get lots of accidents

Or none at all

The roads or icy

You can slip and fall

This is when you have to much responsibility

You can slip

Get in an accident

Mess things up

When you don’t have enough

You can have no snow

It’s weird for this time of year

Your supposed to have at least some, but what if you don’t have any

Growing older is like spring

It’s the awkward parts

The weird in between

Growing older means new experiences

It’s like summer

Everyone loves summer

It’s a time to do things you want

Figure out what your passion is

What you like

And what you dislike

Everyone likes summer

But some hate the warm ness that comes with it

Some experiences are good

You enjoy them

But others can be bad

But you learn from them

I mixed the two ideas of growing older and seasons from this website

Fighting Poem


I want to give up

I’m sick of fighting

I’m going to break

I’m silently hiding

Under the smile

I’m not as strong as you think

I’m falling apart

My life is crumbling

It feels like my fault

The guilt haunts me

I wish this wasn’t me

I’m trapped in the walls

The walls of my disease

I’m silently waiting

For some hope to shine through

I feel like I’m suffocating

I will push through

If that’s what I have to do

I hide my emotions

I’m falling apart

I don’t want to fight

But there is no choice

I made it this far…
