    I wrote my first poem in the second grade, and it was about my grandfather. Went something along the lines of

    "Now God has his soul
    All he left us was this bowl"

    hehe... the first poem I had published was in the 8th grade, and it was equally stupid. It was a personification of a raindrop. I've always written darker toned poetry, but have always been afraid to share it because people may think I'm nuts. Now I've come to terms with the fact that I may be nuts, so no prob. : )

    I realized i was a poetry writer when I heard Cascada "Everytime we touch (Slow)" -and im a boy, dont judge- and I reaklized how sad i trully was on the inside.
    they were short but here are a couple:
    'Never have i seen my soul,
    But I know it has fallen into a dark hole.'
    'My heart and mind are one,
    Until my whole life is done.'

    I get much comfort as well as enjoy writing poetry- and began keeping jornals of poems when I was in Middle School. I am not sure how one defines themselves a poet but I write what feels right and I write what is held in my heart---but I think all that actually does is make me a writer who writes with her emotions.

    Regardless I wrote my first poem when I was 7 or 8 years old- it was about being mad about having to go to bed early.

    Mom said No
    I said why
    She said because it is your bedtime

    She said don’t cry
    I said why
    She said because I lied

    I got mad
    I got sad
    And mom watched TV with dad

    Not quite a poem I would think to write these days, but for a kid…it spoke from the heart   smile
