Alright yall, so this is the 2nd edition of my lil somethin I plan to keep doing for the Realm. It is self-explanatory as I have told those I have interviewed in the first one as well as this one here. This one took a little longer to get together, but it's cool. Next time I'll have my 8! And I have to say, I learned something while going over the 6 poets. I thank all of you for taking your time doing this. It's crazy how much yall have in common with each other. Have fun reading this. ~with the help of many others, I present...~ 6Questions for6Poets Poets interviewed: the Guy with a Pen, NisLaniF, ChyllTyrant, skandelous lala, FreakEmoWriter9, MANchyld 1) How did you become a poet? the Guy with a Pen: I... fell in love, young. The Feelings that came about took over, and required expression. And then, as love would have it, I was later hurt.. which also required expression. That intially got me writing, I continued writing about of pure interest. I enjoy writing in general, whether I share it with anybody or not. NisLaniF: I think a poet isn’t made but born. I’d have to think as much because I wrote my first piece at five and have yet to stop. However, my awareness of the gift was heightened at age 14 in my 4th form English class. We studied Shakespearean and Italian sonnet writing and I took to it very well. I think my background in hip hop made it doubly appealing. ChyllTyrant: i've been writing since the age of five. i've always had a passion for words, ever since i was real little. my first word was "ball", which i think represents the equality of my soul. i started really gettin into writing at the age of 14... and took it even more serious starting at 17. i was published in a few scholastic magazines throughout my life, and even took it serious to, in recent times, trying to contact publishers. skandelous lala: I believe you can’t really become something in which you already were. Hence, I became a poet by being conceived and born. It was never by choice. If it was by choice, I don’t know if I would have chosen to be a poet. The perspective through which you see the world can be both blessing and a curse at times. I wrote my first poem when I was 8 or so. It wasn’t about normal things a 7 year old might right about lol. I know I thought nothing of what I was doing then, or where it would lead. To be honest, I don’t even like saying “I’m a poet”. It feels weird. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen others who in my eyes are *true* poets and that’s what I aspire to be. And until I reach there, I won’t consider myself as such. But how many poets ever actually reach the pinnacle of believing they are all that they can be as a poet? FreakEmoWriter9: I'd say it was around last february where i really had gotten into writing poetry. i was influenced by my english teacher who had made us study the different parts of poetry. MANchyld: I started rhyming when I was a child. It started with simple roses are red, violets are jingles, but that was when I was 6. Expressing myself through poetry came later on with learning to focus my emotions. I didn't have a clear understanding of being a poet when I first wrote poetry though.
