I've been writing poetry for so long now and it has changed my life and I am so happy that I was given the gift of books and dreams. So many are not that fortunate.
Poetry has always been my way to escape and live through my words.
Some of my poems seem to come from somone or something deep inside me. Sometimes it's as if I in a dream when I'm writing and when I wake up I have something that I have written.
Some are written with no knowledge of how they came to be, others are nightmares brought to life with words.
I have 3 beautiful children that I am very proud of. My eldest is 9 and my Son is 7 and my youngest just passed away in December she was 5 1/2 months.
Malia now has a younger brother who just turned 2. And he looks just like his older sister. Same onery face and dimples. I know she watches over him, his own guardian Angel.
A lot of my poems have to do with them. How they make me feel and how I was and how I am when I am with them. I can see the magic in the world that they still see.
Other poems are dark and came from nightmares that I can only fight by writing about them and bringing them into the light
