This Is Who I Am
My first name is Belle, that’s a sobriquet * My feelings are being anon is best. Empathetic, helpful, Inquisitive Keen on humour, poetry and music. From a band of sisters, there's five in all Imagine bedlam when we were all small. Love my family, neighbours and my friends And know I will do to the very end. Pet hates are cruelty, terrors of war People being homeless, hungry and poor. Have fear of losing my precious eyesight Unable to see, to read or to write. I'd like to see the world share perfect peace That no one went without something to eat. I wish every child who arrives on earth Love, joy, happiness and only kind words. I live in England, in the West Midlands My last name’s Bellevue on PoetrySoup.* 13th July 2021 *** This is who I am Poetry Contest Sponsored by: L Milton Hankins * Belle Bellevue is my user name on PoetrySoup only. * *******

I am so pleased that you placed in my recent contest. Your bio was nicely written and presented. I judged these blind, so I had no idea who was who. I selected those that were most appealing to me. Thanks for entering. Congratulations. Now, I would suggest you change the XXXXs to your name.

Wow, Belle, what a great write. Thought provoking, and something we should all hope for is a world of peace. I long for the English countryside, though I’ve never been, my ancestry DNA says I’ll always belong a part of your wonderful land. You write with such honesty. I love your work.

Thank you so much Deb, this might seem strange as I live in England but I’m craving the countryside too having had our movements restricted so long during covid lockdowns and living in a built up area, one day soon hopefully… Belle

I ENJOYED READING WHO YOU ARE DEAR BELLE, A SINCERE DOWN TO EARTH TALENTED POETESS. KUDOS FOR BEING WHO YOU ARE AND THE WAY YOU DESCRIBED YOURSELF. WE TRAVELLED FROM LONDON TO EDINBURGH ABOUT 6 YEARS AGO. MY FATHER WAS FROM YORKSHIRE AND MY MOTHER FROM ATHENS GREECE, SO NOT 100% OF EITHER COUNTRY BUT LOVE THEM BOTH TO THE HILT. BLESSINGS AND HUGS, JENNIFER

Hi Jennifer, thank you so much. I have been up to Scotland a few times on holiday, it’s beautiful up there, such amazing scenery. You must have had a very interesting, well travelled life with your mother coming from Greece and having an English father and also living where you do, it would make for a wonderful bio of your own… Belle

Irrespective of name/surname, there is enough in your bio that shows what a lovely person you are, Belle! I am not very savvy with the West Midlands, though I remember going to Birmingham. ~ Best regards // paul

Hi Paul, I try to be the best I can be, as I’m sure you do too. I was born and brought up in Birmingham, haven’t moved far from my roots. Thank you… Belle

Thank you, Belle. We sure are different. I am on only child.My poetry is chock full of my feelings. From the first poem till today. Maybe, it’s because I am a Pisces and never has siblings? I don’t know We just are the way we are. People like us or not. Who cares...enjoy your life, Pangie xxoo

Reads like a good contender for the contest to me. Way to go. Most of us would like the good earth to be a place of peace and happiness for all but it seems to be going in the other direction. Thanks for the visit to my page. Sara

Hi Victor, those were the days though I doubt we were always little angels, more like rascals sometimes, must have been a handful. Thank you, Belle

Belle, I like how you were able to rhyme your bio. I like reading these bio poems cause it gives me a little glimpse into who the people I interact with on this site are. I enjoyed reading about you, Belle! Blessings, KIm M
