Hi ! to all young writers online
And hello to all those offline,
I write some poems often
Which may or may not be sublime,
To me my poems are divine.

Hello to all I am literally a literary newbie and know very less of poetry elements and basics. I try to rhyme lines which sometimes make sense, but mostly nonsense.

Please treat me like a raw metal, feel free to use any tool,
Mold me into carbon fiber when I walk out of your school.

Thanks,
Musafir.

Hello and welcome! First post. Not flaunting, just saying.

So, remember read the rules and follow them. And apart from that, have fun!

First off it's YWO

But anyways...Welcome to the greatest writing site for youngsters ever! (Circus music plays)


So I heard you like poetry, so we put a rhyme in your rhyme, so you could rhyme while you rhyme.

Heh, anyways.

Tell us a bit more about yourself.
What do you like to read?
What's your favorite food?
Are you Twilight obsessed? *draws knife from behind back in case the answer is yes*
Do you have an alter ego we all need to know about? *shifts eyes*

I'm InvisibleGirl, Inni, or Laura. Whatever you want to call me is all good

If you need me to crit something, PM me. Oh yeah, and join in the chat room when you see a lot of people are there. It helps you meet more people and get to know them!

Yattah!

*vanishes in a mist*

I like the fact that you take pride on your own poems . Some people might call it vanity but they do not know the real meaning of the word lol. I wish I took as much pride on my work as you do .

Anyways, welcome and please have a good stay in our lively forum xP.

I think my problem with rhymes is the fact that they automatically make me feel like I'm reading nursery rhymes. Even when the greatest poets use them. It often feels fake.
So I personally advise you to start writing free verse, though I'm no master of poetry... but you don't have to listen to me. My writing is probably worse than yours anyway.
