Teen Writing Prompt 768


Here’s your teen writing prompt. Write a poem about something that gets you angry.


What Can’t We Just Get Along?

Harsh words said to hurt another.

When we are all just trying to survive this thing called life.

Trying to find our place in the world when those words crawl under our skin.

And touch our soul.

Laughter, not with us – but at us.

Tearing us down.

Why can’t we just get along?

Instead of placing labels on those who are not sure how to even label themselves?

Or beating those who are weaker or less in number or with less power with our fists.

Why can’t we just get along?

When all of us just want the same thing.




And a chance to fit into this world.
