    From my thorough readings of some students here and there, I can say that some students are great poets and great poetess. Some students and teens need only to be encouraged and to be helped in different ways.

      Sir, there are many young poets who need no encouragement, just gentle guidance. All those who are new to the site should not be afraid to speak to those who have more experience.

      Yes my fellow poet....all that we need is encouragement and motivation and we shall excel. Thanks for your concern.

    Indeed, if adult hunters would pay much attention to teen hunters' poems, they would know that classical poets are abundant here. Goodmorning to all my fellow hunters, have you read my poem SOMEDAY TO COME?check it out, enjoy it, rate and comment on it as well. Thank you all.

    MIRROR WALL

    Out of control
    We broke the chains that tied us whole
    A fire inside us, it melts our words
    Every secret has its own truth
    The more we keep it, the more it shows
    I'm not saying the words that are right
    And you keep doing actions that you hate
    The brain collides the beats of the heart
    Though it will not pause, more it will not stop
    Same question plays when we lie in our bed
    Rather to eject it, we load more instead
    We can't kill the living pictures in our head
    Wake or sleep it stays as we live
    But one thing pushes us to the wrong way
    It keeps dividing us as we step
    We want to look back but we're stiff necked
    I have a thousand words to say
    It's hard to let go all promises
    Have to pretend you are gone and dead
    Know you'll do the same thing as i did

    An afrikaans poem me and a friend wrote...
    enjoy if you understand it.

    Hoe het sterre in die lug gekom?

    Hoe het sterre in die lug gekom?
    Dis 'n baie moeilike som...
    Kom ek vertel jou gou.
    Dit was eers die kos van 'n pou

    Dit was ongebore sterre
    tussen blomme gebere.
    Die geheimsinnige blom
    het dit versteek onder sy tong.

    Pou gaan haal sy kos in die suikerbos,
    maar die saadjie laat los.
    Stadig vlieg hy deur die fluitende wind
    en gaan rus soos 'n lint

    Aan die donker ruimte
    aan die buitenste, buite.
    Die kleinste, fynste saadjie was vreeslik bly,
    want hy het ontsnap en is nou vry...

    Sometimes I can be a real poetaster, but I enjoy writing poems, so I keep writing poems.

    My friend wrote this poem:

    Bored

    You are very boring.
    I just want to keep snoring.
    I want to sleep
    and I won't make a peep.

    What can I do?
    Maybe I can throw a shoe...
    I am so bored
    I can win a reward!

    I want to cry,
    but not fly!
    I want to do something
    it can't be nothing!

    You are very cool,
    so don't make me drool.
    You are like a crook,
    so stop reading that book! !

    I want to play
    don't take my fun away!
    This is the end,
    so goodbye my friend!
