Born on May 16th 1996, a troubled childhood was the inspiration to start my poetry. From the time I was 11 years old, I have been writing poems as an escape from reality, and a way to get my contorted mind and thoughts on paper. As I type this, I am working on my first collection of poetry and plan to release it by the end of 2018. I tend to like free verse sort of work, but do like consistent rhyme schemes depending on the work. Outside of free verse poetry, you'll find me writing a lot of sonnets. Stay tuned for more. If you ever have a question about my poetry, or just want to chat, contact me here at anytime or feel free to send me an email at Sutherlandjm516@gmail.com. Thank you so kindly for your support.
