Born in the great state of Mississippi, married high school sweetheart 37 yrs. I'm a Christian. Start writing poetry back in high school. I'm not as educated as some on this site. I read other writings to see if I can get to where they are and feel their poetry, not to criticise as some have done my poetry, to me poetry is deeper than what's politically correct nor is it a place to hide from the reality. my advice is read my poems don't let my poems read you.
