Felicity Slaughter (January,1995 / New Port Richey, Florida)
Biography of Felicity Slaughter
My real name is Jenna Bailey and I am 18 years old. I started writing poetry at the age of 13, against my own will, in fact. But once I began to write, I found not only my talent, but my passion for poetry. I found a way to put into words the beauty and also the tragedy I see in the world. My poems reflect emotions about personal experiences, observation, and in some cases, pure imagination. I've gotten nothing but love from everyone who is near and dear to me, and I'm forever in debt to those who gave my writing a chance. I owe my friends who supported me the world, and the only way I know how to do that is through words. So I shall continue, and never hold back.
The Water Lily Pond
As I sit on the bank
and look into the rippling water,
I listen to nature,
speaking calming words
of wisdom and age.
She sounds like the symphony
that is my beloved's voice.
Love fills me to the core.
As I take on last glance
and see all the colors of the rainbow
I feel at peace for the first time.
