I am 17 and wrote a few poems when I 14. But now I've started writting again. I really enjoy writting poetry and reading other people's poems. I find it is kind of like an outlet to write them, things that mean something to me or just ideas which wonder through my mind. Then being able to put them into words and share them with people.
I love to laugh and believe that the simple things in life are often taken for granted. I believe looks get you through the door, but personailty is what keeps you in the room. Don't have regrets and see all experiences good and bad as a learning curve, they make you stronger. Focus on the positive side of things, the negative will only drag you down. May happiness find you in every aspect of your life :)
Close Your Eyes
Ususally it takes me a while to put together a poem. But I found this one so easy to write, it just came to me. It's simple but thats what I like about it.
Close your eyes
and see what is inside,
for there is more truth found there
that your vision could not compare.
For her appearance is only a disguise
to hide what is inside,
her heart holds her being
and this is what you should be seeing.
For her surface is just made of skin
not all the personality which lies within.
So next time you see her
close your eyes
Maybe then you will realise.
