My life story begins with a little girl with a vast imagination, tipping over laundry baskets just to see the bright blue sky. As years pass, she overcomes great adversity, verbal/emotional abuse, molestation, abandonment, eating disorders, anxiety. As a teenager I am told to be quite prolific, and studious, an old soul my friends, teachers, and family say. I first started writing poetry when I was seven years old. I fell in love with literature, and etymology, words fascinated me in every shape, or form. I learned to draw away from the common beginning’s, of “you are as sweet as the scent of a rose,” and, “when the sea blows over the ocean, you can smell the sea water.” I branched off of the theme of simply nature, and poetry began to be my guide, guiding my emotions to weave into my verses. Poetry saved me, saved me from depression, from loneliness, my pen and I are survivors. If I didn’t have poetry at my disposal, I cannot imagine the person I would be today. My poetry uses imagery, my mother says that it’s like I’m an artist painting with my words. I have many hobbies, such as, reading, writing (poetry especially,) baking, music, sewing, ocassionally water color painting, and ocassionally yoga when I do not have too much school work. It’s a bit hard to talk about myself since I do not have the best self esteem, however I would describe myself as an empathetic, sensitive person, I feel everything on a very deep level. My interests include, anything to do with the ocean, literature, love, passion, learning, or education, introspection, kindness, and empathy, among more to be discovered. I am the eternal learner, as I have a need to quench my endless thirst for knowledge. Poetry soup has been my outlet for two years now, where I have penned my poetry, no matter the topic. I am fearless when I write, this is one of the greatest reasons to why poetry is my safe haven. I can be brave, and not fear anything when I write, whereas on the outside I am a very shy introvert, who keeps to herself, and puts up countless walls. I hope you thoroughly enjoy this biography, and may peace be with you, and yours forevermore.
