Suzanne:  What is it about poetry that makes you want to write?
Chimnese:  Poetry to me is something that is a thought that i can relaese easily, it helps me to  write a story in very few lines, i think that poetry captures so much more of the poets emotions. I have grown alot since the first poem i ever written.

Suzanne:  Can you remember your first poem.
Chimnese: My first poem i wrote when i was in grade 6


We'll child
Life wasn't easy for me
It had mountains to climb
And rivers to swim
And it had many ups and downs

But all the time
I kept going
Reaching for the skies
Life was no game

because there was no aim
But i kept going

So did i make it
No,i had to fall off again
But one day
I'll show the world i can do it
Who said life was easy

Suzanne: What poem, written by you, do you like the most?
Chimnese: My favorite I’ve written is Dream


Is it a dream,did we dream.
Did our lives change within a few hours,
Did we really act our parts,
Filling in the gaps,
Isn't something wrong with this dream.
I know now what it is,
Our tears seem real and not fabricated.
Did i see him laying there,friends and family bidding their farewell.
Will tomorrow be any different,
If I lay down tonight,
Will this be a dream?
Will he be there laying waiting, anticipating to see his loved ones?
Some dream all right.
How long will this dream become a reality, today, tomorrow, day after tomorrow?
Dream will you give us hope for another tomorrow.
