Why I Write

When I think of a time that I am most comfortable with myself, writing always brings a smile to my face. When I write my poetry, I describe my life from my point of view and the situations that I have gone through. My life may not be the best it could be at some points but I know that later something beautiful will come from it. As I put pen to paper I can feel the world become a peaceful place where I am free from all the eyes that are watching me. I am comforted by knowing that when people read my poetry they can put on my skin and see the world from my eyes. As I write I think about how I would want the world to be. With only my pen to judge me I am given a greater freedom of thought, from the constraints of others judgments.I am free to explore a world of my own thinking. My writings take me to a beautiful place of what ifs. It is my hope that others may visit this world and find an escape for themselves.

Love (A Poem)

When we both met each other eye to eye

we only heard things about each other

that almost made us cry.

But those two minutes we spent

talking on the phone made me

feel like I was home, with you.

I had an eager to tell you

but all I did was lie

until one day I blurted out the whole thing

and almost made you cry.

This is love that I am feeling,

and from the bottom if my heart

I hope you feel the same way as I do.

This is the first poem I wrote when I was in the 7th grade. I currently revised it so it flowed better. :)
