Biography of Luningning Minguez
I'm a returning college student... I am currently studying at Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Open University System. I became a widow at the age of 21, so I had to go back to schooling. Poetry is one of my passions since I was 11 yrs. old. I lost my pieces which are usually written at the back of my notebooks. Since I found this site I decided to pile them together here. I write only when I have very big emotions that tries to blow up my heart. So I put it on the paper... and eventually everything seemed to be doing well.
