ThePoetryPad.com is a compilation of poems and verses written by myself, Laura Strickland. I began writing poems, song lyrics and short stories as a young girl and have continued to write throughout my life; a handful of my writing is shared with you on this website.

Writing has always come naturally and has been a wonderfully creative and emotional outlet, whether it be about the loss of a loved one, finding a new love, friendship, family or just something in good fun.

I hope you enjoy this site and find something that you can relate to, something that touches your heart and something that you would want to share with your loved ones to express how you may feel.
