Biography of Maya Hanson
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 write; I'm currently doing a 200 day writing challenge for poetry and I'm also working on some novel ideas called Stealing Summer,10 (Sort Of) Sins I Committed, Falling for Hayley, Over the Edge, Forever Is Too Long, and Into the Unknown.
I used to be a gymnast and I still follow elite gymnastics obsessively. Some of my role models are Aly Raisman, Carly Patterson, Kyla Ross, Bailie Key, Aliya Mustafina, Victoria Moors, Angelina Kysla, Simone Biles, Larisa Iordache, Viktoria Komova, Maggie Nichols, Katelyn Ohashi, and Madison Kocian.
I play the piano and sing in an a cappella choir. I also do duets with my sister.
I am the oldest child in my family. I have one younger sister who is 15 and 3 cats.
Thank you for visiting! ! ! I would love your feedback!

Maya Hanson Poems
Despite the wind carving her face raw, she bends to the sky
I Am Human
I am a Human being. I try to
Use a streetlight to show me that things are okay
So Many Words
Could you have chosen a different way to say it? So many words So little time
You claim you felt a spark. Maybe it was just the fire in my hands, directed at you.
Wishes drenched in the lake water Dreams
I almost panic when I look in the distance, black clouds loom But I'm on my way now and I'm fighting against my doom
Because I Never Jump First
A little less than half the spotlight on the side of my face as I stand in the limelight
Hard To Explain
I press myself near the wall hang my hair over my face and hope all you see
I want to run like I'll never reach the ending I want to dive like I'll never touch the deep I want to grow everything I ever lay my hands on I want to breathe in afternoons spent asleep
Fall Out Of Love
Can you make yourself love? Can you make yourself be loved? Can you waste away the sorrow Before you're even all the way hurt
When we stare at each other strangely There’s something in between our eyes Something that defies gravity And we think it’s called courage
Walk Two Moons
Say hello, say hello I'm waiting for a twist in time Say hello,
It spreads fast From my head to my toes and I’m coughing and moaning and running a fever
The Gray Choice
We assume the world is black & white,
But what about blue & yellow?
What about when the fork in the road has 3 spikes
And we assume the world won’t end
Even if we make the gray choice
But what if we make the gray choice,
The one in between?
What happens when you dare to dream,
Dare to make the center choice?
