My mind, in verse…


Who am I?

My name is Samuel Allen, I am a student, (16 years old at the time of writing), of A-Level Politics, English Literature, and History. I enjoy reading, writing, drawing, debating, chess, golf, tennis, classical music, jazz, piano, and other stuff which I cannot be bothered to write.


Why write poetry?

Personally, I find poetry-writing rather cathartic. I had always been sceptical of the value of poems, but once one begins writing, one finds that they become an unexpectedly effective way of expressing thoughts and emotions. I draw, and I write ‘actual’ literature (such as it is), but poetry is my medium when I need to relax, or just write my musings.
