I am a 16-year-old who has been writing poetry for as long as I can remember. I write on a range of topics and I enjoy reading and analysing poetry. I have considered publishing a collection of poems but I have no idea how to go about it. I joined Poem Hunter because I think it is time to share my work with the world, and to see if it is appreciated as much as I would like it to be. I have written poems in the past for funerals of my friend's loved ones, but I am open to a range of themes. I am struggling to make my break in the world of poetry; although I am still at school, I have a lot of ambition and would like to publish poetry collections in the future.
Racism is just so wrong
It makes people feel they don't belong.
It doesn't matter, the colour of your skin;
What's important is what lies within.
When you were put upon this earth
My mum felt she was blessed
But when she lost you she found her heart
Was ripped out from her chest
If I could be somebody else
Other than just me
I'd be the one that's popular
With friends from A - Z
Growing up's like a shadow;
It follows you everywhere.
It won't go away,
It'll just have to stay,
