    From my own life, I started writing poems at about 10 years old. I started because of a book I read in a library. I do not judge my own poetry, so if you are asking if my poems are any good?  Then, I would have to leave it to those who read my poems.  Many of my poems were written early in my life, and only recently published a few new ones.

    That's my story. smile

    You read other poetry, you compare. You take a creative writing class, you ask your friends to read it and get criticisms. You go to poetry slams/readings and listen for a response. If you get a blank look, try a new approach, if you keep getting them, then perhaps you should write in other forms, if you get a good reply... then take that encouragement. If you wanna learn how to start, you just do. Get a journal, a pen and write. Use a thesoris and edit some of what you've written. Play, play, play with different styles. Find other peoples work you like, and try adapting some of thier style. Eventually, you will find your own, you will find your own style and you won't wonder anymore if you can write poetry, you just do.That's whats happened to me, and continues to everyday for the last 11 years. Good luck!

    I was nearly 12 years old... I knew from the start I was already fascinated about these words, sentences combinations, that I looked at writers as demi-gods, but i can't remember what really triggers me to write it... I am sure I was not that sad but then I let the sentiments of an only child flow, and the first poes I wrote was entitled to be "Alone", followed by 'If I could which talked about my getting insecure adolescent life... I wrote a lot of poems in my highschool years until first year in college. I wrote the last 2 years ago, about my dog Peso.
