Born and raised in Soweto. God, my family and sports and music are the most important things in my life. I started writing poems as a hobby and then developed a greater liking for it. The poems I write are based on the emotions I feel at that time, but also sometimes they are inspired by music & movies. I write poetry to entertain and inspire other people to better themselves and that through them, they will learn & most importantly, know how strong and mighty God is.
hi I'm Allison. "Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss.... But every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare.” “My heart stopped. It just stopped beating. And for the first time in my life, I had that feeling. You know, like the world is moving all around you, all beneath you, all inside you, and you're floating. Floating in midair. And the only thing keeping you from drifting away is the other person's eyes. They're connected to yours by some invisible physical force, and they hold you fast while the rest of the world swirls and twirls and falls completely away.”
I was born in the country of Brazil. When, I don't quite know, but I do know that I was born in the streets of Rio des Janeiro to a teenage mother. I was adopted by a Christian American family, at about 5 yrs of age, where I was asked to make up a name, age, and birth date. Since I was a child in a foreign country with no one to communicate with, I gravitated towards grammar and language. For some reason, I was able to comprehend the English language and structure more easily through poetry. My favorite being, Robert Frost! I love poetry cause in a way, it explains an emotion, thought, or just plain life, in ways no other written language can! I'm so thankful for sights like these. It's sad because poetry, I believe, is becoming a dying art. Sights like these keep it alive and well with fans and poets like ourselves!
My personal motto: "Write down anything. To someone else, it could be worth everything." I accept and appreciate any feedback on my poetry so long as it is constructive, and isn't hateful. If you don't like something I have written, ok. If you want to say so, ok. Just don't be a troll about. My three passions in life are Music, Writing, and Video Games. I write poetry, songs, play acoustic guitar, and sing to express myself. I don't upload often at teh moment due to lack of internet access mostly, but also a lack of content. I *LOVE* video games! GO KINGDOM HEARTS AND ALL IT'S CHARACTERS! Especially Number XIV Xion! And I *LOVE* Phineas and Ferb! GO PERRY THE PLATYPUS! Just Sayin'... My favorite band is Imagine Dragons. My favorite poet is Edgar Allan Poe. Thank You, and have a nice day.

Hey there! I love writing, it's the best way I express myself. I've been writing almost everything I feel or been through as far as I can remember. However, I use to write and let it out and throw it all away. I've decided to stop ☺️ And now I will share the pieces I write as I'm inspired. I did a search and I found this website. I hope it's the start of something great. I am looking forward to meeting and reading whatever you all decide to share. We all can reach someone out there. So let's write and let us share
My name is Danielle, I'm 17 and I live in New York, more specifically: on Long Island. I've been writing since I was about 11. It's always been my passion. Back then I used to write short stories, but now I'm more interested in writing poetry. I find it an easy way to express my emotions. I dealt with a lot growing up from living with a broken family, divorced parents, being bullied from kids in school, being emotionally and mentally abused by my parents as well as my siblings. I've developed depression in 7th grade, and anxiety and it lead to an eating disorder. I also just recently got out of an abusive relationship. Everything that I have been through you will see in my writing. I have a lot of emotions and thoughts that circle through my head, and poetry helps me organize them. I hope you read and enjoy my writing.
