Poems by Ari


"poet" a word used very generally
A word used to describe
a writer,
a reader,
a thinker,
a lover.
A word that is only a door to a world of
feelings, and many more.
This is the door to my life.
I'm glad you chose it.

About me

My name is Ari Odinec and I'm 14 years old. I started this blog a few years ago, to share my poems with family and friends. Through the years, Poems by Ari has become more than a website. It has become a resource for me to voice my opinions and beliefs, and to stand up as an advocate. It has become a diary of my growth as a poet. Poetry is a gift that keeps giving in my life, a beacon of hope, opportunity, and joy. I always pour my heart into each word I write, creating poetry that holds deep meaning. I still have so much to learn, and I am beyond excited for the years to come of learning and growth. Please enjoy the poems.
