Biography of Mandy MMR
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.
Mandy MMR Poems
I have never known
A friend, a friend
That has shown
But in death everyone can relate.
Even when I am pushing a grocery cart
I am going down the aisles
With a couple of piles
Haunt my every moment
Leaving this cast
I scream in my torment
Saved from its firy dwell
All is right and well
Of His grace I'll tell
I Swear Someday...
I swear someday I will be real tall and people will think I know it all.
I swear someday I will be nice, but for now, I'll keep my spice.
I swear someday I will be rich, without any kind of messed up gitch.
I swear someday I will be true to myself and hopefully everyone else.
I swear someday people will see the true person inside of me.
I swear someday I will have it all, but I won't cae 'cause I'll be tall!
