A little about me:
My name is Maya Hanson, otherwise known as Mye. I was actually named after Maya Angelou...what a coincidence, I followed in her footsteps and write poetry and stories as well. I am 18 and a freshman in college. I have been writing poetry since about 2nd or 3rd grade (but my older ones on here are not that great) . A lot of my poems are also songs.

I love to ... more »

    Interesting Poems..............From a Great Poet like you

  • Maya Hanson (5/9/2015 8:09:00 PM)

    So you may have noticed I deleted about 9 or 10 of my poems on here. Or maybe not...probably no one really looks at them anyway. But if you are wondering where they went...I went through the process of removing the writing that I think is not stylistically representative of me as a writer or that were just super old (some of them I had written in 3rd or 4th grade, and they just weren't that great) . So yeah. I hope you enjoy any of them that you read though!

    So I'm kind of freaking out...
    In May I applied for the American Library of Poetry's National Poetry Contest with Closer to the Sky. I was just told that I'm getting published in Accolades, the contest's young adult compilation! Congratulations to all the other poets in Accolades, you deserve it, and I'm so excited! ! !

    Hello Maya. I am a Youtuber called Toby Hill. I recently adapted one of your poems for a university project. King of the Jungle. I have since put it up on Youtube (I am not making any money from it nor will I) however now it is up on Youtube I thought you might like to see it. Here is the link: https: //www.youtube.com/watch? v=yXyEbqdUp9o you are credited in the description. I haven't really used this site for anything other than finding your poem however if you do want to get in contact there are the Youtube comments and all my social networks are linked from there. I hope you are okay with me adapting the poem and thank you for bringing such a lovely poem into the world.

    Okay, so I know this may have just been a mistake, but I have four poems that are rated 1.0. It was most likely by the same person, and they might have mistaken it for the highest score. But I have something to say to all the haters out there...If you're going to hate on someone, have a reason. And if you're going to hate on my poems, please comment below telling me WHY you didn't like it and what I can do better. So...just needed to get this off my chest. That's all. And thank you to everyone who has enjoyed and rated my poems over the years.

    I have 188 poems here from November 2011 to now- almost 200! Time has passed so fast. After my 200th poem (or maybe for my 200th) , I will be doing...something...to celebrate. Maybe some quotes or something. I am so thankful to all the people who have read, rated, and commented on my poems since the start, and I want to continue getting better!

Best Poem of Maya Hanson

I Am Human

I am a
Human being.

I try to
Think about others first
But sometimes
I fail.

I am a
Selfish
Human being.

I hold on through the
Darkness that looms-
Now and forever,
I am capable of reaching
For my dreams.

I am a
Dreaming
Human being.

Sometimes
I can’t wait
For things to happen-
I grow restless.

I am an
Impatient
Human being.

I have a heart
Like a fire
All at once, it turns
Different colors.

I am an
Emotional
Human being.

I cannot tell you
How many times I’ve ...
