I joined Hello Poetry on 18th June 2014,
it's going to be a month since I did.
I've been writing almost all my life (I'm just 21, so it's not much)
just as a form of a constructive outlet.
I would go insane if I don't, no matter how ***** what I write is.
I started sharing what I used to write with some of my friends who were going through things I went through to show them they're not alone.
They encouraged me to share it with a wider audience which I never had the courage to.
I am a big believer of the Law of Attraction (yes, The Secret et al) and one night I was listening to some meditation audio and I woke up the next morning, googled sites to share what I write and HP came up.
I thought, why not? So i signed up, started posting stuff.
Joe Cole messaged me to tell me he liked my work and he would post it in a group and well, there I was thinking it was really worth it.
I got the motivation I needed.
Thank you Joe and all of you here who read, comment, like, share, follow, message; ALL of you are making a difference and
I thank you from the bottom of my stitched-up heart.
I don't really know much about poetry
or the various forms (I am a law student)
but I am learning them on my own and will continue to.
Lately, seeing so much hate on this site just shatters me a little more.
Please don't let what others do bother you (read Cravo)
Let them be.
We're here because we love words, we find solace in them and
something or the other that has wounded or made our hearts happy
motivated us to post our work here.
Let's not forget it.
Keep writing and doing what you do best
because each one of you has taught me something or the other
and I'm sure to many others.
You are all doing a great job, giving each other hope.
Let's build each other up with love and words.
Continue to shine your light beautiful humans.
Love, Regards & Respect,
I am too young and I don't really have any right to do this or give anyone advice but please listen to me.
This site gave me a lot and I can't see people hurting.
Please. Thank you and I apologize if any of what I said hurt you.
