I began writing in the 5th grade, just out of the blue, for no reason other than the fact that I could. As I got older, I learned more - about words, meanings, emotions, and the ways I could make my poetry more interesting (hahahah... you can stop laughing now. Really). Certain events happened in my life to trigger a slew of poetry, or to stop it. Hopefully this timeline sheds a little bit of light on my frame of mind, and maybe it will give a bit of insight on what my life was like then. I also think (well, *like* to think) it shows some kind of maturing...

Keep in mind not all of these poems are written from personal experience. Most are, but some aren't - they just came to me cos they sounded good. Or, now that I look at them again... the "concept" sounded good!

Anyway, I'll shut up now.
