Last and certainly not least, I want to thank all of you, because this group would be nothing if you were not here, putting your hearts and souls into the poems that you write and submitting them here to this group for others to come and read. We are all very thankful that you do so. I am honored by every single person who joins, and you are all appreciated here. I wish I could express to you what every one of you and what every poem you trust in our hands means to me, yet all I can say is, I thank you. I will do my best to do more for you. And remember that if any one of you needs to talk, I am here for you. All you need to do click on the "Welcome Home" blog and add your comment, if you want to see if there are any other people who might answer with advice, or those who might share your problem, but if it is more personal please note me and never feel afraid, or worry that you will be bothering me. To help others, that is the main reason that I started this group. Whether it be through poetry or by having it be a safe space where anyone could feel free enough to talk to me or anyone else here.

:heart: Shanna, :iconthelunalily:


We at Poets-and Warriors wish you all the best.

Hi! I'm TheLunaLily, but you can call me Shanna. Writing is my life. It's my passion, and the reason that I'm here today. My Muse is my savior. I love reading and writing poetry, I'm self-taught and I wouldn't have it any other way. (Imperfections can show emotions better than calculated rhymes.)
I have a huge heart, big enough to fit all of you in it. I would love to get to know each and every one of you. Don't be shy! I'm always up for a chat. And if you ever need someone to talk to, note me. I will be there for you, to talk to or just to listen. Whatever you need. :heart:


Hey, guys! It’s Banshee here, but feel free to call me Kayla! I’m a fun loving art major who loves her some poetry. There is just something about the written word that has me crawling back for more. -Like at 3am when inspiration always seems to find me.- I don't mind though!! And I'm sure I'm not the only one that's been there! I’d like to get to know all of you! Notes make me smile, so hit me up with one some time and we’ll chat.

Greetings from prettyflour, otherwise known as Cindi! I am a women, wife and mother who is in love with words. I love reading and writing in all its forms. I suppose a have a special appreciation for poetry; I adore the freedom it affords and the imagery that can be created with just the right strings of words when put together. Just like Shanna, I am self taught and I think that we, who teach ourselves, have the benefit of using experience and emotion in our poetry, which translates easier and true. We live, we love, we write from the heart and soul. I'm proud to be part of this group and yearn to help inspire. If you need me, note me! I can be a great listener, a sounding board or be here for you if you are in need of an honest and unbiased opinion. :heart:


Hi guys! I'm DominaMoon otherwise known as Ava. I've absolutely loved both reading poetry and expressing myself through poetry since I can remember. I'm fascinated by both the written words, and the people behind them, so if you ever need to talk, or just have someone listen to you, I'll gladly be there for you like my lovely fellow admins :heart:
