A Poem by Jessica

What do you think about life? See what I think here.


People think that life is sorrowful

People think that they shouldn't be born

People think that they are useless

But do they know

what's life for

Why do you want to die

There's so much to do

Why do want to die

Life is made for you

Life is the thing you needed to live for

Everyone has only one

You need to treasure your life

Because you can't have more

Life is made to challenge you

You need to "defeat" them

The challenges will never end

Don't panic

You've got plenty of time

To"defeat" it

You cannot die

If you haven't tried

You'll be told as a coward

This name will stick to you

Why don't you try to "defeat" them

You've got your whole lifetime

I get a sense of youth, I see the writer as young and not fluent in lifes experiences. However, you are on track so do not give up.

You are very wise for your young age. We will be tested many times in a life. If we are lucky we will become stronger and smarter. I like the complete poem. You last line is true. A lifetime is a long time. A excellent poem.

For the YC said after 'Because you can't have more'

This comes off as shallow. There seems to be nothing more here than your usual guidance counselor pep-talk. If life is wonderful, then show the reader why it's wonderful. Expose the beauty and wonder of it. Don't tell me it's wonderful. Show me.

For a primary school student talking about how people are so depressed about their lives, yet life has so much to offer is a relief. I thought all kids had become depressed because the 21st Century has just gone to the dumps. But I'm glad there are still kids out there who want to make an impact. I love what you have written here, and I agree with you to the fullest, that the challenges will never end, and we've got plenty of time, we just need to be able to manage it well. Thanks for sharing your happy words here.
