Poems »

I started to read poems when I was 10 years old and was liking writing poems each day. Years later my mom was happy and glad I was writing small books and poems but sadly I lost her when I was only 15 years old and Remember's Day was the day she passed. Since then it has been two years and I wanted to make a poem group on facebook so I did. Couple months went by and my school started a poem group too so I joined. Friends and teachers told me I made amazing poems couple of my friend said they cried and so did some of teachers too. I kept on writing poems and get 14 followers in my poem group but I wanted more. Now I'm here posting my poems to the world all because of friends, family and teachers for being there for me. Thank you all :)
