God's Soliloquy After the World
poetry is probably my favourite thing to do when I have spare time. I hesitate to call my poetry
anything really fantastic, but people seem to enjoy it. I like to imagine it's
reminiscent of e.e. cummings, Emily Dickinson, and Bob Dylan, among other lyrical heroes.
Though my poems all tend to be a similar length (I usually write on one side of lined paper, in class), I try and vary the subjects as much as I can. That said, there are also a lot of themes that run through my verse. A psychologist would probably say something like, "These are the things that speak to your head, from your childhood experiences," and I'd reply, "Really? Oh, very interesting. Hmm, hmm..." and not think about it again.
They are things such as love, abandonment, faith, the past and the future; not to mention snow falling, rivers flowing, stars calling, green things growing, and other delightful rhymes.
I started seriously writing poetry in 2005; since then, I've written at least one or two a week, and currently have over 400 to my name, and I have also won or placed in several poetry contests for youth.
