When you come from having nothing, something means everything.
So, thank you for reading my poetry and GIVING me a chance.
My name is Kelly Deschler and I am 32 years old.
I was born in Stevens Point, Wisconsin on March, 4th, 1983. I grew up in the Iola area and attended Iola-Scandinavia School. I started home schooling in the ninth grade, and earned a diploma with honors in 2000. I had a 4.0 GPA, and I graduated a year ahead of my class. It's not much, but it is an accomplishment that I am very proud of myself for completing. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to attend college.
I currently live in Big Falls, Wisconsin. When I'm not writing poetry I enjoy reading, photography, cooking, gardening, listening to music and watching movies.
My favorite poets are Edgar Allan Poe and Percy Shelley. I have also recently discovered Emily Dickinson and Charles Baudelaire.
I have always been a shy person, so poetry is what really allowed me to express myself. I have been writing for about 12 years, but I've only recently been sharing my poetry with others. A few of my poems have been published, along with many other poets, in compilations and anthologies over the past two years. Hopefully, I will have a book of my own someday.
