What is a lifeku?

A lifeku is a haiku about daily life. For those who are unfamiliar with haiku, it is a form of Japanese poetry usually about nature, "profound," and formatted in 3 lines of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. Feel free to check out some famous haikus if you still don't get it.

Comment. It'll make the popular kids like you.

Today's lifeku was inspired by myself as an adolescent, my friends as adolescents, adolescents in general, and basically every adolescent I have ever known. From that time when it's embarrassing if your parents speak, no one understands you, everyone is ruining your life, and of course my personal favorite, your life is over. Why don't you just go slam the door to your room and cry about it?

I think, "you suck" was missing... or maybe "I hate you, you're not my mother" LOL
