My Hero, Yosano Akiko (By: Moemi)

Wow! I like that poem. Oh, hi. I was listening to a poem written by Yosano Akiko. Akiko was a Japanese poem writer that was born in Tokyo in 1461 and she wrote poems at the age of 20. I think Yosano Akiko is a hero because she wrote poems people like and never gave up. Yosano Akiko is my poem hero.

First, Yosano Akiko is my hero because she wrote poems people like. People liked her poems because they were nice. For an example, one of the poems is The White Flower Girl. This poem is about a girl who likes white flowers. She also wrote another poem named The Beautiful Flower In THE World. Many people liked her poems. Yosano Akiko is an awesome poem writer.

Next, she is my hero because she never gave up with writing poems. Some people said they didn’t like her poems but she did not give up. Some people didn’t like her poems because girls really weren’t supposed to write poems at this time. Boys were supposed to but she changed everybody’s thoughts by writing poems. She also could have given up because of her brother going to a war, but he came back alive, so she continued writing. Yosano Akiko is my hero because she never gave up.

In conclusion, Yosano Akiko is my hero because she wrote poems people liked and she never gave up. My best poetry hero is Yosano Akiko.
