My name is Ciara Gough. I am 20 years old currently serving in the Army deployed to Iraq. I have one brother by the name of Morris Gough. My Mother Passed away recently and the majority of my poems are for her. My Father passed when I was younger. My parents only had 2 children so he and my grandmother are my family. Growing up I was sheltered by my family, raised in the Church. My Mother was and is my BEST FRIEND! I am a cool chick for the most part very open mined but I have my down days when I think about my mommy. I have traveled a lot since I joined the military but next year I will be attending UMKC full time then commissioning into the Army.
