Biography of JerriFaye Thomason
I have been writing poetry since my early teens. Poetry is my best friend. I can confide anything and feel safe. My thoughts are never lost. Age has matured my words and given emotion and depth to my feeling. Poetry is my escape from and to anywhere I want to be. I thank God for the words he has given me and pray that He will continue to bestowe His good graces upon me.

A people in anguish and doing without,
They don’t show their hungry eyes,
They don’t hear their pleas and cries,
They reject that the torture is done,
