Biography of Melissa Medrano
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.
