Biography of Sonya Florentino

I write poems, I've also written a couple of songs,
I write mainly as a form of therapy, in order to understand myself, and hopefully life. Writing poems came to me late (but never too late!) I hardly read poems before (found them intimidating) but I'm slowly learning to love reading and writing poems. My first love is music but poetry is becoming a close second...

Note: I've put an exclamation point (!) in front of my personal favorites. You can start with those if you wish.. some of those titles are:

A Gentleman Poet
A Sudden Rain
Ode To The Worm
Like Onion
Cradle
Aerenfyrre

Red Sky

Your love for me is right
But I am paralysed
Out of breath, scared to death
The sky is turning red

Your love for me is true
As what I'm going through
My heart is full, love has ruled
The sky's no longer blue

[Hata Bildir]
