Favorite Quote:
"Be who you are and say what you feel. Because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss

Juliet was just a kid,
Just the same as I.
Apparently, too young to live,
But not too young to die.

Too young for love and happiness,
But not for pain and sorrow.
Too old for clinging to the past,
Too young for a tomorrow.

Too young to feel the things I feel,
Too young to feel this love so real,
Too young to feel at all, and yet,
I feel just like Juliet.

The author's comments:
In English, we were studying Shakespeare's play, Romeo & Juliet. There was some debate over whether or not Juliet Capulet was too young for love. I decided to take the idea and put it into a poem. :)
