Well, Kalie, we have introduced ourselves before in here, but since there are so many newer members, I see no reason why we can't do it again.

I'm Krista Knutson, 16, and one of your 3 moderators.  I am a sophmore in high school and have been avidly writing both poetry and stories for over a year now.  I joined Passions last June, when there was something like a hundred members, so I've seen it grow a lot! Hmmm, what else...I live in Minnesota, I have a boyfriend whom I love very much, and I'm a passions addict!  

P.S. If any one here ever comes across any written work that offends them or any other problem, I remind you that you should feel free to contact Marilyn, Jer, or myself!

I'm a 17 female from Canada in Winnipeg. I'm currently in High school and will be graduating next year. I've been writing poetry for 4 years now but I'm a new member to Passions. So far I've enjoyed being a member and everyone is so nice, so I hope you enjoy being a member too and I hope to see some of your poetry soon. Keep on writing

Well, I do be Sam Justice, and have been on a sugar high that has lasted all of last week (spring break rules). I'm a Junior in high school, 17 years old, live in Idaho, and for the past year or so have been writing poetry avidly. For about the past three years I've written short stories, and I hope withen a year or maybe a little over I'll have my novel finnished and, god be willing, published. As of right now, the title that I will probably publish it under is "Emerald Vision" and so, if you want to know about it, mail me. Oh, it do be a fantasy book. Ummmm... that is all.

My name is Elizabeth Johnson but to many it is EJ. My age will forever remain a mystery and I live in Melbourne, Australia.

I love poetry and writing in general for it is the only one true way that I can express myself for who I really am. I have recieved an editors choice award and a poet of merit award, which I think when the judges chose it, were drunk or something.

guys? ...where are the guys? Only some speciel guys are interested in poetry, therefor the guys whose are here are speciel.
...and I'm one of them.

I'm 16 years old boy, and live in Denmark. Going in 9th grade just close to examinations and after the summervaccation I'll start on a college.
My nickname is Mumba, and I love a girl named "whiterose", no thats what her name means. She's my dreamgirl...and...anyway I'm fine and hope you guys are too. I have two dreams and I want them both fulfilled at once time. 1st: I want this girl ,which I love so much...
2nd: I want to become a pilot, a great pilot!

...anybody of you guys have a homepage, and a picture on? If somebody need a new friend then email me at , that will be fine with me.

Hey ya'll, what's up? <had to use my Texas twang>   Seriously though, perish the thought, I'm Meredith, 16, 11th grade, and I live in......Texas!! In this little city that we all lovingly call Blowmont, or Boremont, take your pick. See if you can figure out the REAL name. Ummm, oh yeah, I love to write poetry and stories and all, but usually the urge hits me in the middle of algebra or geography or german, and I just gotta write it down before I forget it, a concept my teachers just can't seem to grasp. But you fellow poets are down with what I'm sayin, huh? Well, I hope that's all the info ya'll want, cause this is getting personal. *peace*

Hey everybody! My name is Kayla Peters and I live in west-central Minnesota. I am 16 years old and have been writing poetry since I can remember, probably about 8. My mom got me into it unknowingly when I found an old book full of poems she had written as a teenager. I love to write poetry and do so often, even though I don't have much work on this site.  I have been a member of Passions for quite a while, but haven't been on much in the past couple of months. But, I got to go!!  Hope to write and read more soon!!! Luv Ya!

My name is Crystal Ryan. I live in Battle Creek MI, home of Kelloggs. Actually, that's where I work! I am 17 years old, graduate in 2 months. I want to be a civil engineer but right now am trying to scrape together 7000 for college next year -- eek! It's great to be on this site becasue everyone really listens to what people have to say, and I've met some really interesting people. I also love reading everyones signatures, call me weird but htat's one of the first things I look at! I've been writing poetry for about 6 years now, on and off. I don't think I'm all that great but I enjoy it. Hmmm, is that enough?  ) I'm always looking for new friends so if anyone every wants to E-mail me at, go for it!

Because when you love someone you control their version
of reality. If you lie to them that's like making them
autistic so that what they believe is reality is in fact,
not their true situation at all."

It's not the angry words that break the heart, it's the silence.

Someone said that true love is like a ghost -- often spoke of but never seen.
I've seen both and yet in my darkest hours, tend to believe that neither exits.

Well, my name is Abrahm, I live in Minnesota, north of St. Paul in a tiny little town.  I'm 16 years old, have my driver's license (Stay off the sidewalks!) and I even go to the same school as your moderator, Alwye.  

I'm also the moderator of prose, but I do come here now and then, being a teen.  I've made some cameo appearances and even posted a poem or two.

My real passion is writing stories, listening to music and playing guitar (I suck! but I have fun!).  

I encourage all of you who write short stories or essays to post them in Prose.  It's not as fast as Teen, but admit it, you want to share your story       

Now I'm outta here before Krista decides to hurt me

Hello everyone.  Well, i'm not a teenager, far from it. (i have a daughter the age of most of you and she is the light of my life) I really enjoy reading the teen poetry.  There is some really wonderful poetry written by all of you and i try to respond as much as possible.
I wanted to say that it makes reading the poetry even more enjoyable knowing a little about the young writers. And to know that you are located all over the world makes it even more enjoyable.
This was a great idea kayli.
ps.. to LyricFetish, would that city be Beaumont?????  I lived in Austin for ten years and now reside in Tulsa.

Hey everybody. My name is Jeanna (Gina) Baker. I'm 16 years old and live in Indiana. I've been writing poetry for about 3 years now. I find it a way for me to get my feelings out like some ppl write journals i write poetry (or at least try to). I'm highly into writing and arts like photography and drawing. I've really enjoyed reading everyone's poems yes i've probably read at least one of everybody's poems i don't always respond but i do love to read others writings. I do hope that you all keep up the good work. If anyone wants to talk just e-mail me

Hi! My name is Tamma, I'm a 17 year old Jr. in high school and have been writing poetry since I was in 5th grade.  Many of my teachers continue to yell at me when I write poetry in class.   Some have read my poetry, and then they kind of quit yelling when I wrote in class. Well thats about it for me, other than me saying

hi, I'm natalie, 16 and from Belgium. I like writing since I was, well very young, English isn't my language, really, so I do write some mistakes sometimes, sorry for that. But the most important thing is to express your feelings, and you guys really help to let my feelings out in here, thanx for that
