I am only 13 and have been writing for as long as I can remeber for now. I started writing over the summer because things got a little stressful and well what better way to express than through poetry. I do not sound like a young teen because I do not feel as such. But yet I am. Check out some of my writing, that sounds like I am worthy of my age.

To the world you maybe a person, but to a person you maybe the world

I'm 18 and told I look a hell of a lot older. I started writing when I was 9 or 10 but have loved the English language since I was knee high to a grasshopper.

Imagination=nostalgia for the past, the absent; it is the liquid solution in which art develops the snapshots of reality.

I'm 16...been writing tidbits of nothing since I was 12 or so, then started -really- letting loose at 14. Go angst!

I'm 34 years young and I have been writing since I was 15 - my first poem(s) was a series of short "secret admirer" verses sent to a "friend". Sadly, I didn't get the girl although she loved the poems; thus the writing bug bit me

I'm 20, look 16, and feel anywhere from 15-16 to...well, old! (But that's only because I hit 20, lol.) Started writing when I was 16 and thank God I did! Because I honestly don't know what I'd do without it.

Well, you must be young to ask. Us other generations, well we hate to admit..ok, I'm old.
I've been writing since I was 15. Never really showed any of it to more than family until Pips, though.

I'm 29, for the third time, almost the fourth. LOL
I think I wrote my first poem when I was about 8, but I never wrote
again after that unitl I was in my teens.
Then started up again about 2 years ago.

You?

My birth certificate reads that i'm 28. Of course, most people tell me i look 18-19 and act like i'm twelve...

The oldest remnant of my writing comes from when i was 5, and wrote a bi-monthly family newspaper (with hand-drawn pictures and a fictional portion as well as "facts" lol). My mom has three issues worth as far as i know, and she's not sure if i just stopped there or she just didn't keep them. (I'm thinking the former, as i've always had problems finishing things... )

I mulled this over for about ten seconds...

I liked Sunshines answer to age....I fall
in that same realm.....but one very big
difference....  I didn't start writing
poetry until about 3 years ago....and
then only sporadically until about two years
ago...  And you are how old?  Started writing when?

Old enough to spend a twenty dollar bill at a bar and young enough to get asked for ID.

...well asked once in awhile...what are you all staring at...I look young for my age


As far as writing poetry goes...I'll let you know when I learn how to.

Thanks,

i dont remember /beginning/ to write, honestly (the same applies to drawing) seems i was born with a crayola in my hand i know the addiction was healthy enough for my mom buy me a gorgeous new typewriter when i was in third grade, after wearing out her old one, and i was on that thing pounding away every afternoon.

the first record of creation is a cassette tape of me, age two, chanting lines about a pet turtle. the strangest thing: it had rhythm and rhymed.... neither of which i currently possess /any/ talent for.

(hehehe, rock, i liked the comic strips best thank goodness your sense of humor has developed... *pause* ... nm.)

Ok guys I will finally answer my own question

I am eighteen, today actually

I started writing a year ago after going on an Antioch weekend........where God showed me the gift of writing......I has helped me deal with things that have happened in my life that i previously bottled up...

Anyway I wrote this thread and asked these questions because I like to have some idea of how long a person has been writing when i read their poems.....

Our youngest poet here at Passions is about 8, I believe... and the oldest is 91..

The rest of us fall somewhere in between, and are pretty much all ageless.  Isn't it grand??..

I'm 23 and I started to write when I was in the 11th grade when I was 16. Had a lot of bad times then.
