In the create program we did a ton of things. We did coding, dance, poetry, and a spoken word project. In poetry we are writing poems about teenagers and learning about teenagers from different time peiriods. In dance we are learning the dances from the 50's through the 80's. And in coding we are making websites about being a teenager.
In these three weeks I have grown to know more about poetry, dance, and coding. These skills will help me to become a better student and get into a good college.
The Teenagers of Today It is sunday morning, and my mother is blasting Gloria Gaynor’s “I will survive” as she gently removes her rollers from her hair. I, a 13 year old closet disco queen, twirl, move my feet to the beat and shuffle my way to her. She reminds me of a sunflower, beautiful, freckled and golden She say’s I remind her of her younger years I laugh and remind her she’s nothing like the teenagers of today Then the song ends and with the beat still in my head I hop up to my room and start reading “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee.
We can be headstrong at times But that is just the mask we are hiding behind Though we can be supportive We need others to support us We are the teenagers of today
It is Sunday morning, and my mother is blasting Beyonce’s “Formation” as she tediously cleans the kitchen, I, a 13 year old member of the BeeHive join in on the fun, She reminds me of the Sunflower emoji, cute, small and golden. She says I remind her of her younger years, I, laugh and remind her that she is nothing like the teenagers of today. Then the song ends and with the beat still in my head I go to my room to check my Instagram notifications on my phone.
We are insecure in many ways But with words we can take you away We are clever at getting what we want And are proud of what we do We hide all of our emotions behind acting As speaking never could We are the teenagers of today
From the times of today and the times of the past It all goes by so fast We can be different at times And we are alike in so many ways We are the teenagers of today
