    Strollin' through life on roller skates

    and I won't hit the breaks bc I'm not all that bright but I've got what it takes To make you frustrated, I'm overrated, undervalued, yet imitated. My glass is half empty and sometimes half full. I'm a tool but I can make you hate me, debate me, want to date me. Clever little...

    About Me

    I love singing out loud. When no one can hear me. I write so many love poems I could write a book. "There is no boundaries, no locks anyone cant put o your mind," and i use it. I think what ever i want and almost always write it down so I dont forget. I love a lot of...

    There's a heaviness in my chest

    that I can't explain. There's this weight dragging me down that I can't explain. There's a part of me that wants it to all go away, but there's a part of me that deserves disarray. There's dozens of scars, bruises and cuts for each and every sin that I can't explain. And...

    From bird’s eye view lies a tree in the midst of clamor. Her leaves occupy the unsettled air; Ballerinas, in an artist’s poise. Here sits a boy, despondent. His head’s stooped, back arched, using the trees bark as his balance. Fourteen years of darkness.. His thoughts blend...

    Singing and Writing Poetry Help Define Who I Am

    I write poetry about my life experiences - sometimes words pour faster than I can write. I've done this for years and by doing this, I've learned about myself, connected closely with others I care about, and better understood my inner feelings. When I was a teen, I sang in a...
