    I've been passionate about writing poetry

    and songs, I've been writing since 6th grade, the poem was called “Words, Words, Words”. It was about being bullied and feeling like it was a terrible relationship, but it was a friendship. Then I shut myself in my journals, an wrote until I felt free.

    I never understood how to express my feelings

    in the socially acceptable way so I kept it all to myself. And then I began writing them down and realized there was a rhyme scheme to some of my thoughts and voila, a slam poem
