wow! my first poem ever written is 15 years old!


Back in the day, I had a blue notebook. I wrote my very first poem in that book. May 10, 2000, is the exact date. The title is Something I Just Wrote. It’s not that good of a poem at all and obviously, I wasn’t that inventive with the title but it makes me laugh to read it now and it is very special to me so I thought why not share it on this Freestyle Friday? So I hope you enjoy the words of my 15-year-old self.

something I just wrote
I’m trying to find a creative way
to write down these important words to you
It’s hard to think of a beautiful, different song
Thoughts are running through my mind
but they all sound the same
The songs that I wrote before are pretty lame
The love I don’t have yet I want to say
Show it to all my friends like a display
But I can’t play while playing a song
A song with lyrics that comes from the heart
Lyrics that are good from the start
Words that explain the word love
From what I know, it’s as nice as looking at a dove
Even though you aren’t in my life
I’m going to write and recite
This poem is to you
Replacing every you with your name
It’s going to be special if I have this book
I’ll show it to you so you can take a good look
Of my feelings I had about love back then
Laughing about it now and again
Oh how I want that now
I want you now but unfortunately, you are not around
To actually be found but when I do
I’ll make sure the love is true
So I won’t have a broken heart
and have tears falling from my face
with anger, sadness and confusion
to feel like you were an illusion
Being with you will be nice and feel all so right
I will love you forever
As long as we are together

Do you still have one of your first creative writings? If so, please feel free to share it! I’d love to read it!
