Biography of Kelley Collins
I was a child living a life of abuse, molestation, and uncertainty.I knew what it was like to fear the dark, the light, and people that entered or left our lives on a daily basis.
I learned at a young age that some children in life cannot trust anyone. It is a scary, lonely feeling when you cannot trust a parent, a school teacher, a bus driver, or even the people sent to protect children most of all.
It has taken me many years to deal with the pain and nightmares of yesteryear.
I will always remember the journey, good and bad that has gotten me to be the lady and mother I am today.I hold tight to my faith in God and laughter of my children and grandchildren.I also enjoy the few friend I chose to call my own; for, in this life time Real Friends are few and far between. May God Bless you all.Thank you.

Kelley Collins Poems
I Am A Diamond In The Rough
I am a diamond in the rough, meant to be buried yet still remain tough, My father told me i could outshine them all; for, at my worst I still stood tall.
I Must Let Go
The battle that has been fought deep within, led us to lust and many a sin, I have held you in my heart for many years, watching you marry for money caused a lot of tears,
The time has came to be apart, Your abuse was never very smart, In an angry moment you split my head, It could've been the killer and I would have been dead
In A World Alone
All alone I came into this world, All alone I sink into the waves at sea, The tides wash away each sin that has been hurled, doing away with what's buried deep within me.
I Am Moving Forward Again
I was once a super mom and tender hearted wife; but, I have known too much of this abused life! this emptiness within is a wretched thing, It's worse than the torture that my past did bring!
I Love You Always
To be able to taste your sweet nectar that renews in the Spring, The whole world shall hear my heart sing. I shall dance mystically in the pouring rain, just to feel your heart beat without any pain,
My Hungry Friend
Tonight my friend called me on the phone, He said>'I am hungry and feel all alone', His voice was warm, lonely, and sweet, He says, 'Hey gal. would you like to meet? '
I have loved you with all my heart, You have taken it and torn it apart Healing doesn't start; because, the heart won't mend, I try to forgive but the hurt doe not end
You do your best as a grandparent to help hearts mend; yet, Children think they know it all in the end Grandparents teach child to respect society as a whole, Government teaches our young war deep within their soul.
Sing Of His Blessings
In a world of depression and pain, many people speak his name in vain, You are the Blessed Savior, the survivor's hope, The gospel words you promise is how we cope.
The bittersweet memories of yesterday are not near the same as the tears of today, What happened to the joy we use to share? Was it worth it; or, does nobody really care?
It has been several years since you were taken away, The shirt you painted still hangs from your very last day,
Today is set aside my dear to show my love for you it would seem unlikely for me to say I cannot... I can only love you more
We are giving up the fight, There has been too many a darkened night, Many hearts' have been burdened and hurt; because you choose not to heed the alert!
I enjoy holding you throughout the night,
feeling your heart beat is naturally right!
I rub my cold nose against your warm back;
while, you lie peacefully snoring in the sack!
I never dreamed this gift of love would be so good!
Who was I to know, life existed outside The Hood!
You're an inspiration in so many ways;
that, our friendship remains strong throughout the days!
Past memories diminish as we travel on,
