Biography of Jessica Goodell
I owe my interest in writing poems to my high school English teacher, Karen Lafary, at first I was reluctent and upset that we would have to write poems for class. After the first time it got easier and now I can't seem to stop writing. I will probably continue writing. I'm always carrying a small notebook and pen with me, and writing whenever inspiration hits me.
Looking in the mirror what do I see?
I see a girl.
She's scared and putting herself through pain.
She goes on putting her mask together.
Up goes her hair and on goes the make-up.
This is the girl everyone expects her to be.
She goes day by day pretending.
A fake smile, the best she can give.
She wants to be strong for the ones she loves,
