Poems »

I am a born and raised South African. I started writing poems when I was in High school, I would scribble them anywhere I could find, and I kept all those pieces. Most of those poems were in my home language, Afrikaans, but later I found a love for writing in English, I can express what I want to say a lot clearer. When I get an idea for a poem, it usually starts with a line or two, and if I don't write it down I will forget, then the rest of the poem just comes. When I think of it afterward it feels like I blacked out, it is like my mind just turns off and the pen just writes. All of my poems are free verse, and any rhyming is merely a coincidence, and punctuation is only used when absolutely necessary for the effect of the poem. Poetry is like therapy to me and it is my way of communicating to others how I feel. I am just shy of 23 and hope to keep on growing my collection of poems.
