    Some Of My Work......you Don't Know.

    Still working on this one

    but think I've nailed down the chorus to a Country love song about a cheating wife: In good times and in bad I don't care 'bout the fun she had. In sickness and in health Our love's our real wealth. So 'til death do us part She'll remain in my heart.

    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.
