The theme I choose to do was adolescent love and all the problems that come with it. Being in love as an adult is probably difficult enough, but when you are an adolescent I think it is harder just due to the fact that we are not mature. We have feelings that we do not understand, and how to deal with them.

That is how you get your heart “broken”. We are only 16; we have time to get rid of it.
      I chose the poem She Doesn’t Know by Baller327 because it talks about how someone feels when you love someone who does not even know you love them. I think this happens a lot with adolescents because we get shy and nervous a lot when it comes to telling people how we really feel. This poet is explaining how much he loves this one girl, who happens to be his close friend, and she does not even realize that he loves her as more than a friend. He is scared to tell her, and...
