Hi everyone,
I am Annie and I have been volunteered to run the forum - arggghh!!
So be nice to me and send in your excellent poems to the site for us all to enjoy.
I am nearly 40, two children and love writing poetry. I write poems to sooth my soul and I get a lot out of writing them. So please don't be shy and express yourself here.
I'll look forward to reading your poems.

Hello people,
What a great idea for a website. I am delighted to get on board early and will enjoy the occasional visit from my wee hoos in the island of Malta. I am 55 next month and my kids have flown the next. My wife died a few years ago and so I moved to where we used to holiday as she loved it. Served only 18 of my 22 due to a bad car smash.
Annie I am a wee bity skint at the moment but rest assured I shall be donating a few sheckles your way soon.
Yours aye
Jock

I heard about your site through the National Gulf Veterans and Families Association (NGVFA)

I was in the "first" Gulf and have been having a bit of a rough time ever since. I used to love poetry and found it very therapeutic. I started writing again to try and understand the hurt I was causing to my family. I have submitted a poem and hopefully you'll like it enough to publish it.

Well done for the site, some lovely poetry there (some funny stuff too and we all need a laugh to keep us going)

Rgds,

Sland

Hi and welcome to Sland and Heartlands,
We have received a fair few poems over the last few days so well done to you all. Some of your poems are very touching and full of emotion... this is what does us all good, saying what we really feel.

Thank you so much for all the emails of support, I love running this site and although I work full time I shall try to reply as soon as I can to your emails.

Keep it up and well done to you all.

Annie x

Hi my name is Sarah and I heard about your site through forces reunited. I love your poems as they really make you think. It is so nice to see that you guys really do have a soft spot.
Even though some of them are a bit scary (my man is in the Gulf til christmas) I enjoyed every one of them.
I have never written a poem but I will give it a try and send it in. Cheers for the email address but how do I set it up on my PC?
(am I the only woman/wife/partner on here?)

Hi Sarah
Annie is hard at work in her day job and so on her behalf welcome aboard.
I will send the instructions for you to add your new @forcespoetry.co.uk email address to your PC to the email address you used to Annie yesterday.
So glad you like the poems and the fact that men can express their feelings through their poetry on our site.
Al the best
