At the age of five my Mom died, and from that point on my dad raised me. I must admit, he did a really good job. I keep all of my emotions bottled up inside, so writing is my way of releasing feelings I try to hide. I've been writing since I was in middle school, and as I matured so did my writing. My poems are my interpretations of my experience with relationships, friendships, and family. Whether it's good or bad the best way for me to express myself is through my writing. I'm also proud to say I'm a domestic violence survivor; because it didn't kill me, it only made me stronger. I didn't plan on doing anything with my gift until something I read not too long ago. It said something along the lines of,"If God gives you a talent then you need to use it". From that point on I made it my mission to publish a poem book. So now I am sharing my gift with all of you. Enjoy!
