I'm just a student and I Wright when I'm bored and for fun. I love poetry and words .
I was born in Oriental Mindoro, a province in the Philippines. We didn't have many neighbors, I only had few close friends despite my being quite approachable. I used to like the idea of being famous by performing onstage, having the typical talents that my classmates had -- like singing and dancing -- but I wasn't good at both. And so, I grew up into a very introverted person. I rarely speak; although when I do, some of my friends think that my words are always full of sense and humor. But their words didn't help much in my personality development, so, I decided to search for other talents that I could possibly have. That's when I decided to write things (weird or extraordinary, sometimes stupid) random things just popping up inside my head. Some people liked my writings-- my teachers, classmates, friends and my high school crush :). I started reading other people's writings, too, so I could learn more, impress those people some more (possibly gain confidence from their praises). Then I learned how to write poems and how amazing it is to be able to write one's thoughts in verses. I wrote some, and they had been published in our school paper back in high school. But, I didn't take creative writing or anything alike as my course for college. I had to follow what my dad wanted me to take-- Accountancy (it's quite easy to find a job here in the Philippines if you are an accounting graduate, and I badly need a good job to help my poor family). I'm doing fine, but not as fine as I would have been if I had taken creative writing. So, I tried to find a place where I could post my poems and possibly have some people to read them, then, I found this site and I hope it'll be a good refuge for me when I need to let out words that I can't let out with accounting. :)
ETA: I have not been in this site for seven years. Yes, seven long years. I actually forgot I had this account (my cousin accidentally found it after searching my name on Ecosia). Lol. The cringe I feel about the things I said here... Beyond explanation. I won't delete them though. It's kinda nostalgic.
Just in case anyone may find it interesting, in the last seven years, I have become a CPA, a financial analyst, an even worse introvert, BUT I have not lost my love for poetry. I haven't written much in years, but I think I'd like to give it a try once more.
The seasons of life.
Everyone has a safe house. A sanctuary. A place they go to escape from the snares of their reality. Mine is through writing.
Poetry has always been my shadow through the years of struggle. It carried me through the ups and downs and showed me how to believe. It helped me to embrace everything this life holds. Good and bad.
I hope you will find encouragement to face your fears, fight your battles and turn to God for help when all seems lost. May you always stay true to yourself and find some counsel or comfort in the stories hidden within.
(I welcome any comments or criticism)
I started writing poetry back in early 2000's but never took it seriously until recently. I love to write and will write when my emotions bring me to that point.
My poems are dedicated to my daughter, Melissa and to a man who has always been a friend and encouraged me to continue writing; to Marcos Adrian, I will always be your "La Poetisa Oscura".
I love writing when inspired, I'm inspired by nature, emotion, music, and the Scriptures.
I'm a Christian Hedonist.
I love lyrical poetry with rich theology.
That's why I write Christian poetry.
Kenneth A O'Shaughnessy lives in Simpsonville, South Carolina. He writes poetry and songs almost every day. He also writes short stories and children's picture books, including The Boy with the Pig Nose, written for his son Andy, who helped him illustrate the story. Babies for Breakfast is his first chapter book.
I am 20 years old currently working on a book and a music album.

I've always since a little boy wrote poems, stories, songs, ect. and up until now I've put serious thought into pursuing it in a professional manner. Hope you enjoy...
My name is Kirsten. I am 14 years young. I know I'm fairly young but I love poetry and I'm always being told I'm very talented. I've had a rough life, but you can do anything through Christ, who strengthens you. Yes, I am a Christian. I'm not like the stereotypes though. Well, I hope you enjoy my poems!
i love pot noodles and write poems about shite
I emerged from a protective barrier holding me as if a vacuum would. I expanded on knowledge that everyone knew, making all equal, but some more equal than others. I conformed. I ate when I was told to eat. Slept when I was told to sleep. And now I'm here.
