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!

Blood Sky

The sky is drunk by blood
Blood, from the people who tried to save us.
People who are heroes.
They wanted that our live become better.
So i ask you, did it?

The sky is drunk by blood
Blood, from the people who tried to save their Families,
the people they love.
