I started dabbling at age 13, and after a while, I was writing full poems, however, I only have poetry from when I was 16 and up. I am now 27, and I have found that it is so much easier to say things through poetry than it is to verbalize them.
I draw inspiration for my poetry from writers, musicians, movies, my faith and much more. As far as writers go, when I was younger I got introduced to Langston Hughes, and I have learned to take from his style of writing. I also enjoy some good old Shakespeare every once in a while. Most of my influence, however, comes from music; I draw my influence from genres that include but are not limited to, hip-hop, folk, rock, and country.
Another thing that really impacts my poetry are events that have taken place in my life. Movie characters and themes also have a chance to have their fair share of influence in my poetry. I am a Christ-follower first and foremost, so, beneath most of my poems stories, there is a spiritual undertone. My plainly faith-based poems, however, are a written (hard) memory of the headspace that I was in at that time in my life. People can create all sorts of art without having to fabricate who they are, and without compromising who they are as a person; it's being able to take from other peoples experiences and write about them, based on the writer's interpretation, that can set a writer apart from others.
I write mainly Free Verse poetry, because to me poetry is a lot of self-expression, and if I were to follow the set guidelines of a certain type of poetry, I would then be forfeiting my creative license. Sometimes, however, I like to take from certain styles of poetry, especially when I am trying to convey a particular emotion, for example, I not only write Free Verse but, I also have learned to take from other poetry styles, such as Blank Verse & Limericks.
I have a friend who said this, "If there is one thing I have learned about writing over the years it is that the best work comes from writing without the audience in mind." I find this quote to be accurate for not only my writing but for writing in general
I started writing poems last 2/21/2015...Inspired by reading someone's enormous amount of poems. I hope that you enjoy my poems. Please comment on my poems if you'd like...good or bad...I'm open for suggestions to improve my writing.

Just another gallant misanthrope with a bad taste of life, washing my mouth trying to drool it out slowly. Living like a lone wolf pondering on how to make life significant. Writing away my heart, saving my soul through my writings.
I'm new to this and probably not very good. But writing helps to heal.
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

I do my best work at night.
in the darkness you can see my light.
It shines from within and unleashes my creativity.
I am a weirdo, obsessed, emotional girl with a heart that sometimes turns dark
I write about my life and the trials that I go through. I really am an amateur. I've never considered myself as a poet, but I'm excited to share my novice poetry with the world.
I am a seeker of an undefined number of truths within the multifarious layers of mundane existence of billions of souls who share the privilege of life along with me. I prescribe to:1) un parenthetical spirituality whose expanse goes beyond the confines of major world religions; 2) discernible and reasonable skepticism that seeks to access, not disconfirm, the divine in us, nature, or nonformed essences and realities; 3) written, oral, musical and visual abstractions of human expressions of discerned perceptions that better the humanity in micro and macrospheres of global coexistence .
first line five syllables
