Winner takes all
looser takes none
welcome to high school
isn't this fun?

The games can get hard
and then they're confusing
but ultimate death
is the concept of loosing

Back stabing
fingers crossed
hearts broken
friendships lost

High school is hard
but it's just a game
we all want to live
want to make our name

I was bullied a lot in the 4th grade, mostly girls did the bullying (mean girls) High School sucks I know but at the end of the day you still have your mind and you can choose to be the bigger person and forgive them. High School is just a small part of your life it doesn't last forever. So hang in there keep your head up and smile, I love love love this piece keep up the good work :)

I like this poem because I can relate to it easily. When you say “The games can get hard and then they're confusing” I feel as though I can relate to this well because I thought high school was going to be all fun and games, but it’s a great deal of hard work.

I don't think that the author meant to do that. She probably just wanted to get her feelings out out in the open about high school. Also, i learned that the rhyming scheme doesn't necessarily have to be that way, because they can differ (Shakespeare and Italian sonnets).  In the end i think that poetry is about expressing yourself, not necessarily about fulfiling requirements. But,  this is my opinion, and i really appreciate the work the author put in writing this. Good job!

That is so true. I am a junior and it never stops no matter where you go. I wish people would see what they are doing to us.

noooooo this isn't a sonnet.  sonnets are 14 lines with 10 syllables in each line in blank verse form (as in every other syllable is emphasized).  their rhyming scheme is ABABCDCDEFEFGG.  this fulfulls literally none of those requirements aaah

This was so insightful. You're a fantastic writer. If you don't mind, I'd love to hear your opinion of my poem Broken Structure. Cheers. :)

I like it, though I am pretty sure you mean "losing" instead of loosing...

Very well written but not the format of a Sonnet ;)


A Sonnets Format is:






A total of 14 lines. 4 versus. No more now less :)

That format is strictly for English, or Shakespearian sonnets. There are many form of sonnet. You are right, however, that this is not one of those forms.

I like the structure. The rhyme scheme gives a sing-song quality to the poem which goes with the mocking some kids recieve in high school. The end is abrupt and a little shakey but over all great poem. Not sure its true sonnet format though.

Its cool but this isnt a sonnet. The first two verses are supposed to have four lines. The other two are only to have only three lines, to have a total of fourteen lines in total. And its supposed to have ten syllables per line, because sonnets are of major art. The poem is great and all but, it isnt a sonnet. Probably free verse though.

Cute...but it isn't a sonnet. Sonnets have fourteen lines, ten syllables per line, and are commonly written in iambic pentameter. This certainly is in the wrong section.

The words "losing" and "loser" only have one "o"... Sorry to be a bit of a stick in the mud about thing. Still, pretty good.
