I have to write a poem and the topic was alienation and isolation of self for protection. The poem I wrote was:
I feel your presence, even though you’re not really here
I feel so empty, but what do I really fear?
You left all alone, to the other side
Now all I can do is lie here and cry
I feel so alone but don’t I want any help
The people, they laugh; they don’t ever stop
Those who surround me, feel nothing more than strangers
Because of your memory, I see them all as dangers
I’m so close to being free, no more worries, no more sorrows; I can finally be me
All it takes is one small move; could you do this for me?
Kick over the chair, watch me fall and let me be free
Is this too serious for a year poem assignment?

Well, I don’t know what kind of poetry you were supposed to write, but I have trouble finding the metric and rhyming pattern.
About the serious….is this something truly you feel and live? If it is not, then it is perfect!!!!!!!! 🙂 You surely wouldn’t want to freak the whole school out do you? 😉
You have talent! Keep up the good work!

As an assignment at that grade level, it is teen angst and clichÃ©, but we aren’t the judges of your issues, or maturity level.
Yeah and get some help if you’re having suicidal thoughts.
