Biography of Mandy MMR

Mandy MMR poet

I started writing poetry in the fourth grade. I had written a poem to my mother who then sent it to Poetic Power. They approved my poem and it was published.
A year later my Mimi (grandmother) died. I was asked to write a poem for her funeral and I did. After she died, I didn't write very much. I started writing again about two years ago.
I had read a few books by Bryan Davis and decided I would read his biography. In it he had written a thanksgiving poem and I decided to try and create another poem. I e-mailed him asking for help on a poem and he graciously gave it. I sent Outside and Alone to poetry.com and a few weeks later, I received a letter saying I was a semi-finalist.
You must understand that when I had entered, the form had asked how old I was. It had a list of years to choose from, starting with 1984. Well, I really wanted to try and so I said I was 18 since they did not have my age group. I have won the Editor's Choice Award numerous times now in an adult contest.
Now I have proudly written 45 poems(may change) . That is an accomplishment that I am proud of.

God Bless,
Mandy MMR

Outside And Alone

Walking that day, outside and alone
Hoping to catch that scent of cologne

Praying to hear that small, sweet voice
In loving you, I have no choice

To see your lips caught close to mine
To feel your hand upon my spine
