Ever written poetry?
22 Dec 08
Modesty aside, writing poems is one of my hidden talents which I have discovered when I was still a high school student almost two decades ago. There were a couple of instances when I gave 2 different sets of poem compositions to 2 of my classmates. Both of them were amazed to find out that I'm able to compose poems. One classmate even asked me to write a poem for her, which I gladly did. And there was one situation when our teacher in World Literature subject had to give up teaching. The reason behind that decision wasn't clear. Personally, I don't know whether she was reprimanded by the school authorities or she had to giv up teaching because one of her children was seriously ill. But the whole class absolutely loved her because she was good as a teacher and we definitely learned a lot from her, academically and otherwise. On the day she bade us goodbye, I was able to create a poem while I was crying, literally; before I gave it to her as a thank-you note and goodbye-gift. After that, I realized that I found it easier to write poems when I'm sad or ecstatically happy. But it's been ages since I wrote my last poem; due to hectic routines and no inspiration. Happy holidays.

I have and its rewarding. You should give it a try. Be sure to go into it knowing you may not be satisfied with what you write. We can't all be great poets. First write for just yourself. When you're ready, if you want to, share your work with the world. Good luck!
