Biography of Lee Degnan
Hi, my name is Lee. I grew up in Westchester County, NY and moved to Dutchess County, NY in 1993, following the Hudson River north I guess! I have a high school diploma from Peekskill High School (1991) and unfortunately life's challenges did not allow me to go to college. This did not stop me from studying languages, pop culture, music and poetry, and devouring any books I could get my greedy hands on. I have 3 beautiful children who keep me extremely busy, and a full time job, just in case I think I might get bored.
My writings are for my enjoyment/venting (and a couple of friends and family) only and are just reflections of my thoughts, feelings and experiences. I will appreciate any and all constructive criticism! However, I do not in any way think of myself as a professional ANYTHING, so if you make a comment on my writings I only ask that you keep that in mind.
I do hope that you enjoy my writings, and I thank you in advance for taking the time to read them!
Ask of me
to help you please
and the best I can,
I shall do.
But what remains
of what I cannot change
is up to you.'
-Chris Weersing, fellow Poemhunter
'Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.' -Victor Hugo
Lee Degnan Poems
given to me by some miracle
that I cannot comprehend
I was worthy of.
the birth of my madness
and an innocence demise
I awoke from a terrible dream
I took the next few moments of haze then
lighting up the night sky
Three smiles shining like the sun
so warm, bringing tears to my eyes
do you remember
the times profound
...and all I can do is sit here
home so cold and empty without you
yet so tense when you chose to be
time for you to self implode
reek havoc, have your fill at
just spewing anger at all of us
when we've waited for so long for you
to be here
