I'm sure everyone has heard of the tragedy "Romeo and Juliet". You might have read it in high school - such a common thing to be forced to read as an innocent little ninth grader.

Many people call "Romeo and Juliet" one of Shakespeare's best pieces. To some, this may be positively and absolutely true no-questions-asked. To some, this may be false in the sense that they believe Shakespeare wrote some better pieces. And to those other "some", they might just think that the story of Romeo and Juliet is ridiculous - "A twelve year old girl and a twenty year old guy falling in love at first sight? Bah! That's great, bro!"

I am going to put myself in a spotlight of shame by revealing that I was part of the last "some".

I respected the play as a piece of classic literature. But the whole concept? I wasn't a big fan. I kept thinking to myself, "So...Juliet and Romeo know each other for barely eighteen hours before getting married, claim they love each other, and then at the end Romeo kills himself because Juliet looks dead and then Juliet wakes up, sees dead Romeo, and kills herself because he killed himself for her?" It just wasn't something I liked.

But now, I think I understand. Maybe Romeo and Juliet did fall in love at first sight. So when they saw each other "dead", the sudden thought that "S/he's dead...I will never see him/her again in this world. I just can't live with that." races through their minds. They just fell in love! They just got married! They never had a chance to be happy! And I understand that now. That's why they killed themselves. That thought was too much for them to handle. The pain of seeing your beloved dead by your side caused such a deep wound you decided to kill yourself. If it means you'll be where your love is, you'll do it. You will be happy if you're with the one you love. Even if it mean killing yourself.

And that's what they did; killed themselves.

Pain of the heart is worse than pain of the body.

What are your opinions on this topic? Any thoughts? What have you gotten out of "Romeo and Juliet"? Do you have any suggestions as to any other book or poem to talk about in a journal? Please comment!
