21st Birthday Poems

These 21st birthday poems will definitely make you laugh. Don't you agree that a 21st birthday is an important milestone? I know what you're thinking - More Responsibilities. The poem below reminds us of our childhood and hints at this stage in life as being a transition. 

Memorable Transition

Childhood like a distant boat,
Course taken, others wrote.
Rebelled from your chosen way,
Winds and waves aided; youth astray.

Swan-like elegance, grew-up brisk,
Memories remain on a disk.
Unique and random, cannot deny,
With each passing day - Glorify!

Now at the age of twenty-one,
Life has truly just begun.
Hope and wish, your dreams come true,
Along the way, a gorgeous view.

Sweetest Ride

Happy birthday you're twenty-one,
Young and healthy, so don't you frown.
Remember when, I was your tender age,
Walked to work; made half your wage.

Now you're legal in every State,
Avoid the keys, if intoxicate.
Is it worth, to risk it all?
What should I wear, to my funeral?

Don’t give up, there's still a chance,
Give life more, than a casual glance.
Faith and hope are on your side,
Trust your gut; sweetest ride.

21 candles finally are here,
I must admit, I waited all year.
So many obstacles, around tried to steer,
Passion for greatness; truly sincere!

A bit more mature, mind fairly clear,
Path in the making; future career.
Wisdom chooses an open ear,
Your charming smile, people adhere.

Youthfully bold, conquer your fear,
Never hesitate to shed a new tear.
Your beautiful actions, many revere,
A trusting shoulder, always hold near.

21st Birthday Poems

It’s your birthday time again;
It’s true; there’s no denying,
Another year has come and gone;
You know that I’m not lying.

I want to recall
The adventures we've had,
The friendship we've shared
Through the good times and bad.

We've grown up together
For twenty-one years,
Through dreams and through happiness
Through laughter and through tears.

We dreamed of great riches,
We welcomed good luck
And chocolate ice cream
From the good humor truck.

Our conversations on the phone,
Exchanging both our thrills.
You know I often wonder
How we ever paid those bills!!

So for you, the birthday person,
Here’s what I want to say:
I hope this birthday’s the best one yet,
In every delightful way.

So happy birthday to you.
Have lots of birthday fun!
May your birthday wishes all come true,
Even if you have a ton.

By Chloe McEwen

21 Today

21st Birthday today,
Your old age has been swept away.

21 today, hooray, hooray, hooray.

Walking like a swan down your party isle,
Like a bird flapping off into the wild.
