Hi, I'm 14 years old, and when I'm home with nothing to do I start to write poems. Sometimes I write about how my day went or what goes on in my life. When I write poetry it makes me feel like nothing can hurt me. Once I express my feelings, I feel good about myself.

I really like writing poetry because it's fun, and you really get to know how people are feeling. Also, what makes it so much fun is how you can use your attitude and put a lot of feeling in your poetry.

After the poetry slam, I was kind of disappointed, but we only missed by 3 points and that's OK, because I know we did a good job.

My friend Shatisha thinks everyone did great during their performances. Chris on the other hand, said that he did the best, but I think everyone did fantastic.
