Are Acrostic Poems For Kids

A quick and easy question to answer– acrostic poems are generally a kids project, which is a great way to get them talking about their friends and sharing kind words with people that they love.

However, as mentioned before, I think acrostic poems from a more advanced standpoint is a really fun way to get more creative with poetry. It’s like a haiku– once you have reached a certain point of confident poetry writing, adding new rules and structure to it makes it a little more interesting and fun to write, even about simple and broad subjects like friendship.

So while this is generally a kids’ practice, enjoy the simplicity and have fun with it! It might make for a really interesting project.

Best Friend Poems

Sure, it’s important to have multiple friends and surround yourself with many good people, but nothing beats that one friend that sticks closer than a brother. There’s nothing better than the friend that knows everything about you, the good, the bad, and the ugly and still chooses to love you and stick by your side day in and day out. A best friend is everything, and sometimes they’re the hardest to communicate to just how much you love and appreciate them.

The closer you are to someone the harder it is to be more vulnerable with them, but these best friend acrostic poems should make it easier. Simply copy and paste or write by hand into a birthday card and you’re good to go.

Let the poems do the talking.

From the departure of all worries
Refreshing beams from a source
In a new way with a bloom

Hiking through the perils of this world
It’s a relationship with your friends

Passage and shelter, from all trends

Writing about friends can either be the easiest thing or the hardest thing. Whether you’re good with words or not, it can be tough to tell the people that you love that you love them and why. I’m not terribly well versed in the concept of words of affirmation, I would rather show you my love through acts of service or through quality time, but if I find the right poem that will portray the words I wish I knew how to say, then I’m going to utilize it! And I have definitely found some of those here today with these acrostic poem on friends, and I hope you have too.
