It's a great concept. A lot of people I bet, especially on this website, can relate to it! It's short and sweet, very easy to read but it leaves you with so much more than just a few lines of a poem. You pack a lot of emotion into only 8 lines, which is very nice! Good job!

Maybe, movements is better than dances in the 4th line. But it's just me, so...

This poem is good - short and easy to read... Keep it up :)

Short and sweet!  It's a nice poem, saying how kids aren't supposed to have fun.
