My name is Kailey Nicolaou (Titanium-Heart), my friends call me Kailz or Elly. My work is about my life struggles that have occurred and about faith, hope, depression etc. I have been writing poems, novels and songs since I was young to express my feelings, darkest and lightest thoughts. A lot of my poems are about my daughter Summer Rose Nicolaou who died on 18th December 2008, this was one of my darkest times that I have ever had. I do not speak to many people about my issues, so poetry is my release. I truly hope you enjoy my poetry and follow me for more of my poems, if you do follow me, I will defiantly take the time to look at your work and follow your page as well. Thank you.
I have never truly fit in with my peers. In early grade school, I had a good amount of friends my age, but by the third grade I was reading at least five grade levels above them, and had discovered my love of the written word. I immersed myself in literature as my peers immersed themselves in pop culture. My friends grew closer to each other, as I delved into my own world. A world of fiction and fantasy. As the girls fell in love with the boys, I fell in love with my favorite characters. My vocabulary expanded to the point where large, polysyllabic words were part of my normal speech, and I had to repeat and tailor my sentences to speak to my peers. This trouble communicating pushed me further from my friends and closer to my books. I chose to live my life between the pages. It was only a matter of time, I suppose, before I discovered what reading had given me. I had developed a command over the written word which I could use to create my own stories. I could share my own thoughts efficiently and creatively, and I could make it sound beautiful with the ways I could craft the syllables to my whims. Words became better friends to me than humans. Over time I have discovered myself as a writer and poet. However, I have not lost my interpersonal relationships. I have been in love, I have been hurt, I have learned to interact with my peers, and I have had the experience one receives in high school. I have taken my experiences, both real and read about, and told them with words. I have learned from life and literature, and developed a depth of maturity that separates me from my closest friends. They come to me for advice because I have an understanding of issues that has proved helpful to them, in the rare situation that they actually enact it. However, when it comes down to it, the superficiality of my fellow high school girls pushes me away. I have tried and failed to open up to my peers and have effectively, though rather unfortunately, created a vast distance between them and I. Now here I am, unable to connect with my peers on a satisfactory level, and I feel a deep loneliness despite however many people surround me at any time. I have, to my dismay, dug my own hole, -- the nature of this hole I am still unsure of, could it be my own grave, I don't know -- but I have opened up a bottle of hurt and placed myself in a crippling depression. My own ignorance has been my ruin. I put myself on a plain above my level, and when I finally came down, I came crashing down only to find that I had pushed myself too far away. I have friends whose sincerity I am irrevocably unconvinced, and I have my own thoughts. Thoughts full of pain and resentment. I used to, desperately, blame others for it, too. I blamed my peers for not being on my level, and even my doctors for treating the ADD which could have kept me back from becoming too knowledgable. However, now I see that I am alone because I put myself in solitary. It is as regrettable as the physical scars which I have made on my wrist and gut: the emotional scar I have carved in my own heart. PS: I have a bit of an affinity to Willow Trees...

* A creative minded Smart Girl.. * I do my thing and you do yours... I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. * You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it cant be helped. * I am you; you are me. You are the waves; I am the ocean. Know this and be free, be divine.
I think of myself as a poem. Poems and I are much similar. When i write , I draw out a picture, any picture that comes to mind. After drawing the picture i title it. Then i study the image that I have drawn. This is what brings back memories , or what we like to call it "Flash backs". My poems are a mixture of my & what i have seen. its kinda like i write peoples autobiography for them. Plus i'm sort of good at reading people. Enjoy my poems. I hope at least 1 out of 5 can relate. ~Terena.M~
Moran Ndinisa, stage name TMCrazzzy.1991 aged! Born and raised in nelspruit from a small village named GBZ in daantjie. I wrote my 1st lyrics when I was in grade 7, primary school, it never got on tape but I could always get hype's from guys around the hood, hence it was very rare. then it went quiet since I had no idea nor a plan of how to procced about. Then grade nine, I met a few cats from the school I was attending, they kinda got the fire ignited. A couple o' cyfers, then later during that very same year, a nigger I grew up with fell inlove with producing, we did a few joints which went really apealing,. But a few people listened to our crap then, grade 10, things then started shaping up, I met scoundolous, the scientist, nigger is horrible on the bit and his mixing was just on point at that time and age, produced one of my best songs even today, songs like, "lifetime in hell" and "make that killo". After matriculating, I moved to witbank, the I thought the dream of a young rapper came to a solid wall but it was the begining of great things, met my friend and current producer! Mr M.T.H, mtherro, a God fearing nigger, we went to the same church and we figured out our rap style could not fit nor accommodate the lives of young Christians, then we had to chose between music and our belief, but we chose none, we decided we gonna bring it to church, that's why even today, after being dirty, dirty for so many years, I'm doing Christian rap and its ministering.
I'm a mother of two and nanny to a beautiful little princess called Gracie mae I've been married for almost 25 years. I used to write funny poetry years ago but didn't really have much interest in it, my mum passed away in 2012 and losing her inspired me to write again, I managed to capture a roller coaster of emotion from my family during the first of everything, something I'm very proud to have done as it has helped us with the grieving process. I write funny poems too which helps to lift us when we're feeling down!! When you lose someone you love so much it puts life in to perspective and changes you so much, now I see people and situations in a different light and friends I thought I had for life, sadly have not been friends. Never mind hey ho it's their loss!!!!
Hi my name is Laura Ashley I am a young writer of only 16 years old. Poetry has always been a huge inspiration to me since I was only 5 when I discovered how to write poems. My poems are based on realistic things that have happened in my life although I do write some poems based on other things. I am hoping one day to be a famous poet although deep down I know I will not be. Thank you for taking your time to read my poems if you have.
Well, I have definitely had an odd experience with this journey we call life. I spent Nine years in prison. While travelling that dark road I realized that life was more valuable than the things I was wasting it on. I'm definitely an amateur when it comes to poetry, but I just like to write. Maybe someone will enjoy it, and maybe no one will. Either way, I just wanted to share some of my writings.
“A day with out a smile is a day wasted.” i'm only 18 i love writing poems or just writing its my own way of self explaining myself in any type of emotional thoughts. I'm a crazy army brat i have moved from countries to states to cities , that has helped me with my writing only in the matter that i find and have more to write about
