Biography of Melissa Medrano

Melissa Medrano poet

Hello. My name is Melissa Medrano. I am 22 years old. I am from a small town called Colville about an hour from Spokane. I have experienced with drugs and alcohol for years. I wrote my first poem when I was incarcerated in county jail, and learned quickly that writing down my life struggles on paper helps relieve my pain. It makes coping easier even if it sometimes contains humor. I like to make people laugh. I write when i'm angry, happy, sad, confused, and when I believe I have been magically cured from this disgusting disease, drug addiction. So here is a collection of my ups and downs in my life.

Big Bro

I'm sure it all started with a couple hydros
I never guessed it would be my family going down this road
It's like a nightmare come true
Until my brother started using heroin, I never understood the effects it
has on you
It's so sad to see my own brother waste away his life
I'm waiting for the day reality cuts him like a knife
Did he think his life was really that bad?
Did he not realize the family that he has
