    I do. I started writing poems when I was in sixth grade. Modesty aside, in the early 2000s, my parents secretly sent one of my poems I wrote for English class to a site, a gallery of poems and poetry. Mine was selected as the Editor's Choice and was featured in the International Library of Poetry. It was by far my greatest achievement of all time. Just thought I'd share for inspiration. πŸ™‚

    That was lovely. It is really scary putting writing out there, because what you write is essentially what you're thinking. For me, I don't write poetry or anything. But I do know that whenever you're about to post something, just post before you think about what you're doing. If people don't like it, who cares? It's not their corner of the internet. It's yours.

    I love your poetry! I'm awful at poetry so I admire people can write it. I do mainly fiction writing. Specifically fantasy and supernatural!

    I LOVE this!! So glad you shared. I've started writing some poetry aimed for songwriting and it has been so freeing to explore a new writing style! Love seeing others explore their creativity! You go girl!

    I love it!! I think it's awesome you shared it. You'd think after you publish a book you'd be over the fear of putting it out there but I guess that's just a thing that probably only gets easier the more and more often you do it.

    tis is simply beautiful! I have the same worries about writing on my blog , so far I have only posted one poem, but in future I am going to change all that

    I literally have chills. Maybe because I felt like you wrote it about my "secret me," or about the "secret me" inside of everyone. πŸ™‚ Poignant.

    I love that! Really really good.

    I'm not too poetic myself, I always say that, then I think maybe it's because I never let myself be. I'm trying to work that out a little in my writing journals.

    Loved this, friend, because it is awesome and because you were brave enough to share it;) I don't really write creatively, but I love pouring out my thoughts and feelings for a blog post, and never seem to run out of options to write about. Reading and writing seem to gee me the most pleasure out of life, as does connecting to others.
