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

Surrender

Cut me loose
From these ropes
I'm not running anymore

Pull me out
Of this hole
I'm not hiding anymore

Ask me to
Bare it all
Deepest reaches of my soul

Take me now
Set me free
I am armed and ready
