Hilal Yilmaz (Germany)
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!
My way to mourn
Sitting in the corner,
Thinking about the good time we had.
I should be stronger,
for you and your memory.
But you exist no longer.
What should i do else,
it's my way to mourn.
I feel me strengthless,
