Biography of Hilal Yilmaz

I started writing poems when i was twelve.
Of course, they weren't that good, i mean no one can expect that a twelve years old girl can write really good poems.
When i was telve, my parents decided to divorce, that was enough reason to look for a way to impress myself.
I started drwaing, i still do.
I tried myself in writing songs and playing guitar and piano, i still do.
I love to do all these things, but when you feel empty, because you miss a person in your life, it doesn't help that much.
And then i read a poem.
Actually it was Dylan Thomas' Do not go gentle into that good night.
It was my inspiration to write poems. It still is.
Everytime i read this poem, i got a new idea, not just for poems, for anything!

Family

What is Family?
For me, Family is when you have someone you can talk with,
someone who understands you,
someone who gives you a warm feeling,
someone who truly loves you.
Family runs for you in a fight without thinking of the risks,
runs to save you in every situation,
runs for you till the edge,
goes over blood.
