Romeo and Juliet

by Elsie aged 12

Romeo and Juliet
Loved each other very much
The hatred between their families
wasn’t enough to keep them apart
Their love was deep,
as deep as a pool,
a pool of darkness,
a never ending pool,
a pool with crystals,
crystals that shone,
a pool of wonder,
wonder why,
why their families fought’
Why did they have to be born,
born into those families
that hated each other?
Why oh why
did they have to be born,
born into these families
that hated, hated, hated
hated each other.

    Excellent work. Bags of emotion there. I’ve laid it out in lines, like a regular poem. Are you okay with the occasional criticism? I think you’re writing is very good. It may help you get even better.
