About the Author
I'm from Minneapolis....but
born in Kankakee, Il, a small town outside of Chicago. I was
raised fatherless, and grew up on welfare, without the things
that I wanted, including friends.I realized my talent for poetry
in the sixth grade. The poem was called, The Girl Who Sits Alone.
It was basically
about the loneliness I felt in grammar school. No one wanted
to be my friend, so I sat alone, while hearing the snickers,
laughs, and cracks about me behind my back.
high school, my poetry was about being lonely. In college,
it was about wanting and needing love, feeling misunderstood,
anger, and pain.
that I'm 27 years old, my poetry is more about me, things
that I see, and things that I feel. It's also about
passion, and eroticism.
