Promising Poet

This student poet says, ‘I don’t want pressure of a target in poetry’

Neha Jibin from Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park explains how writing poetry in her free time is the most pleasurable activity in the world



Neha Jibin from Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park is a poet with many streams flowing in  her heart. She is equally adept to write a fabulous poem on any subject. Her recent poem Never Thought this way is an example of this. 

Selected once again in this week’s Promising Poet, let us read about the constant improvements Neha is undergoing to find her poetic voice. 

I feel a lot of growth happening within me. I have managed to read some famous poems of Robert Frost and Rudyard Kipling in recent weeks. The Road Not Taken is one of my favourite poems. 

When I watch new dramas and web series I get motivated from the characters there and their unique expressions and also when I read books, ideas keep coming to my mind.

My school is giving us students good opportunities to write and by the support of my teachers and friends, I am growing with every opportunity, every new poem I write. 

I had recently written a poem called Hidden Agenda and I am also going to write a blog as a change of mind. My blog article will be on the topic ‘Why radio is still an essential form of media in the 21st century’

In my poetry, I find inspiration in the ordinary moments and experiences of daily life. I believe that there is beauty and meaning to be found in the mundane and I strive to capture those moments in my work as a poet.

Yes, I now experiment with new poetic forms, styles, or techniques to expand my repertoire and challenge myself creatively.

Yes they do! And they feel so happy for me and proud of me. They then come to me and often share their thoughts on my poem. This is followed by a great discussion. 

I don’t want the pressure of any target as a poet , I am just writing my poems as a hobby when I am free. I want to continue enjoying this process.
