    When I first met poetry
    I was only twelve years old
    The days of long pigtail
    Sayin I'll never grow old
    Back in the day
    I was in "Project Achieve"
    A class for gifted sudents
    People said they could succeed
    So one day I picked up that pen
    I remember me first poem well
    My mom stuck it on the fridge
    She though it was "swell"
    I just did it for an assignment
    I didn't realieze it's power
    Hell I just wrote about my cats
    Not fears that make men cower
    But when my teacher intoducted me
    To those new rhyming schemes
    "abab" "aabb" or aa"
    Oh my god, she opened up my dreams!!!!!!!!
    Now 5 years later, POETRY IS MY LIFE
    I scribe what I have seen
    Take critics to the knife
    My first time wasn't sexual
    It was a revolution!!!!!!!!
    It gave me somewhere to release the pain
    It was my ultimate solution
    :toast: :jumping:

    i'm hype,
    bcuz i feel the same way.
    one pen--one paper,
    and a world to say.
    who would have ever thought,
    that to write poetry would ever be my goal.
    no i can't survive without it,
    it's like a piece of my soul.
    God gave me and u a gift,
    and everyone on this team.
    and only when we scribe 2gether,
    can immortality come to being.
    so keep on doing,
    what the Lord put on your heart.
    and i never say what i don't mean,
    and never end something i didn't start..............(it don't get no realer than this----FANTASTIC!) [email protected]
