Romeo and Juliet- Year 10 English

‘Romeo and Juliet’- A Poem

By Bellanna Jenkins


Hating is like love, and loving is like hate      

Both are the same and yet they are divergent.  

Rivals that are ruled by hands of fate                        

Forcing those that feel to become urgent              


In their quest to find balance in peace                      

Two people trapped spinning around and               

around. They face fate in hope to cease                  

The pain caused by their intertwined                         


Love. A love that causes hatred to be                      

Seen in their eyes. Yet still they are baffled.      

Their hearts are stung by a defending bee              

Sent from Hell that means to make them crazed  


One day they shall

rest in peace with goodwill           

To meet in the afterlife

and be still.
