Hi I’m new here but I’ve been a nerdfighter since I found the Crash Course YouTube channel. Being Australian and all I find the vlogbrothers really calming and I listen to the videos all the time. Is there something that you listen to that calms you.
Plus here is a poem I wrote
At night or so old Shakespeare said
Witches and all that we dread
Come dancing from their grimy slums
Chanting to the sound of drums
Saggy skin and wicked eyes
All they touch sooner dies
But these women that brought me up
They have drunk from the imortal cup
Aged and withered in their looks
They’re nothing like in Shakespeare’s books


  • Hey there! I'm a teen nerdfighter too! I think your poem is really cool! One comment is (i may be biased) perhaps a free rhyme scheme. Here's a poem based on John Green's TATWD! Do comment guys!

    Can you hold me like you did
    In these last moments together
    Let me feel the warmth in your hands
    When we would not know about the future
    But be happy about the present

    Can you bring me again
    On the road i have not taken
    To prove to me that it is love we feel
    Not what we are in

    Can you teach me about the stars
    And still see that meteor shower behind the clouds
    And remind me that it is the same sky we share
    Wherever we are
    Between you and I

    Can you turn around once more
    And say those words of Good-bye,
    Because i would
    To tell you that even at the furthest corners
    I want to see you again

    Nice poems! I really like how the Shakespeare one is kind of playful, and the TATWD one can seem ambiguous to someone who hasn't read the book- but it really fits!

    Hey! I really like your poems! Here's one I wrote:

    Going higher and higher,
    Feeling the wind against my skin,
    I glide through the air,
    I fly,
    I see the world below,
    I see who I am,
    Who I was to the world,
    I see the world the way it is,
    I see its ins and its outs,
    I see how it was,
    How it is,
    How it could have been,
    How we changed it,
    The things we need to fix,
    The people we hurt,
    How to change the world,
    And now,
    Seeing the world,
    Realizing what we have done,
    What we should have done,
    Now revealed in a dream of flying.
    Make art, not friends.

    Look up at the stars, not down at your feet.
