Biography of Courtney Gentry

Courtney Gentry poet

Growing up in Alabama wasn't as easy as everyone made it out to be. At least if you're a Gentry. But no one seemed to have my story, they just assumed so like an obvious teenager would I dropped out and got my GED. Yes, I gave up. But I mean its rough living a life where nobody believes you. And not just my peers, my own family.

Escape

I feel like I could fly away,
into a land of great escape.
I'm feeling the pain wishing it was just the rain i'm hearing.
I want to relax, make me calm.
And still I think of what went wrong?
I ask myself almost everyday,
it makes me so mad I can't think straight.
Now i'm in this land of fear,
and I'll be damned if I won't get out of here.
