My First Poem

I thought as hard as I could
Of how I would my first poem begin
But this I knew
That once I put my pen to paper
Then I could write a full book


So I started to write
With my eyes moving from left to right
And a lot running through my mind
People will hate it
While some others, it will change their lives


But this again I knew
That behind the best lines are worst words too
I hope it would be given a fair trial
My heart couldn't hope for any better
And at the end, you would say
How I love to read this poem again

    Well- I will tell you- I LOVED READING THIS POEM! Great write, there is nothing more beautifully expressive than writing poetry, and the fact that sharing it with the world can leave an impact on peoples lives- that just makes it even more beautiful!
