Write about your future. What will a typical day be like for your adult self? Will you still live near where you live now? Will you have the same friends? What will your family be like? What will you be doing?
What do you think are the worst poems ever written? They could be by other poets, adults or children, or your own. Study them, then write a bad poem.
