I was on quite a few websites where I posted my poetry.
On a few of them, I actually got noticed!
People actually thought my poems were good!
But then, they asked me how old I was.
Like an idiot, I told them.
Praises turned into comments of:
"She's too young to be writing stuff like this."
"This must be plagiarism."
"She must've made all this up."
Isn't it funny,
That the moment people find out your age,
They turn on you.
The same people who proclaimed my poetry was art,
Decided it was garbage after I told them my age.
Does your age decide your talent, and the value of your works now?
That is why,
Though I have no problem with people knowing my age,
I've never mentioned my age on this website.
It is only known that I'm young.
I don't know why I wrote this, Or why I keep thinking about all this stuff today, but I figured I'd write it down.
Sorry for this rant/poem/stupid thing.
