My Poetry

When I was in high school, I wrote a lot of poems. I enjoyed attempting to express feelings and thoughts while sticking to the strict rules of verse. It was both challenging and fulfilling. A lot of these poems are a bit on the depressing side, I suppose, but that's mainly indicative of how I felt while writing them. Writing is a calming outlet for an uneasy mind.
