I started writing poetry when I was seventeen years old; I found out that when you put your thoughts into words something magical happens. I'm not talking about genies popping out of a bottle or anything like that, but in how I see things clearer and how beautiful this world truly is.
I found out later in life, how much easier it was, to find a date in high school. I used to try and talk to girls, and found out sometimes I'd get a little gun shy, and pass up on my chance. Then one day, I wrote a poem for this girl I had my eye on. I walked up to her, and handed her the poem then walked away. Later that day she approached me, and we went out on a date. I found the magic potion to breaking the ice (so to speak) was a piece of paper and a writing pen.
I learned how to put my thoughts down on a piece of paper, which later I put into a blank book that I would write my poems in. After I was told by fifty or so people, that I should share these poems with others, I sat down and sorted out my poems, I thought could touch your heart the best. I hope my poems are inspirational enough to help you create your own book.
