Poetry - a form of creative writing that comes from the bottom of the author’s heart. A pure and beautiful form of art that has been widely recognised not only hundreds of years ago, but is moreover truly beloved at this day and age.
Historically speaking, poetry used to work only within a rigid format, whereas contemporary poetry now breaks the boundaries of lines, stanzas, and rhythm patterns and gives the freedom of endless creative expression.

Over the past few weeks since articles has launched we have been thrilled to see how many of you have shared their work. We had a hard time picking five poems to feature as all of you are incredibly talented young writers. Love and the expression of it has always been a main theme of poetry. This feature will focus on the good and the bad times which were processed by you with your words.

Here comes the first selection of certainly many more to come. Enjoy!
