I Write Like a Kid

I Write Like a Kid

A Poem by Silver_Moon

I write poetry like a kid

Words too simple, stories too naive


I write poetry like a child

Hence, innocence can be seen in every mile


I write poetry like a seven year old

Just writing the ones which they have been told


I write poetry like a kid

But I make sure all I do is write my life and I did




I would love to write like an adult

Where things may change and love will behold


I would love to write maturely

Hence, people will be able to relate a lot with my poetry


I would love to write as what people in age should

But young people should be able to understand, I will make sure


Simple and naive, my poetries it can be

But the contents are matured, innocent and sweet, all will be

Aw I love the simplicity of this and how innocent this is. There is nothing wrong with a childlike point of view. Whenever I'm writing it in a childs perspective i find it difficult (not because i'm the least but mature haha), but because its hard to do that. I'm sure you do it just fine, and just for the record your writing is very adult like and professional :) Dont be so hard on yourself hehe

Hi Silver Moon,
I like your brand of honesty; no pumped up brand of self-importance here. I don't know how old you are, I'd go for twentyish, but I'd just like to say that you have poetry in your heart, and that with experience, practice, dedication and the inevitable lessons of life, you will eventually be writing poetry that others will cherish.
Take it from one who has been writing for forty years; there's no such thing as a born writer. Excellence is something we all strive for, and we have to be willing to put in hours and years of practice, disappointment and frustration, as we grapple with language to come to a point where we make a certain style our own. You will get there in the end.
However - never tell your readers to ignore the grammar. It's up to you to get a handle on it, because readers are slow to forgive spelling mistakes and problems with tense. That's part of your apprenticeship.
All the best.

I must admit, it dragged on for the first bit, always starting a stanza with 'I write poetry like...' , but that made me change my mind completely when it took a turn for the better. That HOWEVER helps the poem a lot. It's witty in a very intellectual and almost unnoticeable manner.

Well done!

God stanzaic set-up. It flows nicely and makes good sense. I like hopeful poems.

That was beautiful!! I love helping my eight year old write her stories. It's refreshing. I understand everything you said. Wonderful!!!
