Poetry is my way of expressing who I am and who I was and who I will become. I was told I had some type of talent in writing in second grade. I was told by God the summer before my freshman year to sign up for a creative writing class at school and this is where I found the great pleasure writing can give you and that my second grade teacher wasn't a total liar. I have two novels published. For more information, visit www.outskirtspress.com/chelly or www.outskirtspress.com/JessicasChoice. Finally, I respect all of your comments and just hope that you enjoy my poems.
