I started writing because I needed an outlet. My childhood was a struggle, so I needed to be able to express myself and my feelings. Of course, as a child, I had good memories, but those memories were few and far between. I write today because I feel the need to express myself, my experiences, my journey and my thoughts on issues that people do and do not want to hear. I always told myself, as a poet, that if I could bring out the good or bad feelings and emotions in just one individual, then my mission is accomplished. Life is a constant battle; life is extremely tough but you can't let it get you down. I try to bring reality to people with my words because, most of the time, people run from it.
I''m real big on respect and I value honor, honesty, loyalty, and responsibility. All I can be is me. I know my history and me heritage, where I came from and where I'm going. There are poems you will agree with and some you won't. By all means, it is not my intention to offend you; I just say what's on my heart.
I would like to give thanks to my Lord and Savior for blessing me with the gift of poetry. He is the only one who has made this road possible for me. He has opened this door of opportunity to touch individual's lives and for that, I will forever be thankful. I will forever keep my faith in Him. I am blessed. I am doing what makes me HAPPY! Poetry is life- it's an art form and it's my PASSION! Enjoy!
