Writing poems is something that most of us have done in our Literature or English class in high school or college, but I believe very few could actually do great poems. When I did my poems in high school, my grades were OK but I really cant say my style is superb. You?? Can you write poems?? How good are you in writing them?? I'd be glad if you could share your poem here... B-)

Cheating guys - seems like a very interesting topic for a poem. I'd be glad to see that. Can you please share it??

i've written a lot of poems already...my english teacher told me that i write really good stuff...but even with ther good reviews, i've never really had enough confidence to show my poems to others...i treat my poetry as my own personal journal, in it lies the thoughts that i keep in my head, and the words which i tend only to land on paper, not on other people's ears...

I write poetry, but I am afraid to share my stuff in here or elsewhere because there are some people who like to steal others' work and claim it as their own. :-(

well writing is a great part of me and I am used to writing poems when I want to express my feelings.I write poems because I need it, because words come to me and urge me to write them..I write poems when I am sad, and when I am happy..I write to find my voice and because I like the music that words can create..I am not used to sharing my poems because sometimes they are very private but I am slightly changing my mind..I write my poems in Italian because it is the language my heart speaks and I hope you all can enjoy the experience of writing what your heart feels!!!

I have written some good poems that my friends and those people that are close to me loves. My sister even wanted me to read my poems to her because she felt that if makes a difference if I am the one reading to her what I have written. I have actually written a poem that I shared here in mylot dedicated to my children. It's entitled 'Love Beyond Reason'.

Wow Grandpa Bob! That's really super sweet of you. I am sure your daughter greatly appreciates that poem of yours until now though it was made in the 70's!!

Hi. During my senior secondary classes I wrote few poems that were appreciated by a lot of people but I don't think that they were as good as were said, I think they were read by most of the schoolmates because of my popularity in the school because now when I am in engineering nobody seems to like them.

Well I write poems especially when i feel down and flows of ideas came so easily. All my poems are about my emotions at that very moment. Writing poems are one of my outlets when I can't share it with anybody,,,I express it in poems. I would say am average in writing poems or maybe it depends on one's reading it how good we are (,")
