I am a 32 yr old mother of an extrodinary son. I know most parents claim this but my son saved my life. Before he came along my world had no meaning and was dark. I was slowly killing myself with drugs and alcohol. I was sent a beautiful gift and a second chance at life. Hope you enjoy my poems... fortunately I am no longer the person in these poems. more »

Best Poem of Teresa Newman

That Stranger Is Me

I stare at the stranger in the mirror.
Who is she?

She used to have dancing eyes
-now they're filled with a thousand's whys
She used to have a beautiful smile
-but that too has been gone awhile
She used to dream and hope
-now all she does is shoot dope
She used to have a pretty face
-now it's just a dark, hollow place.

When did I become she,
and why won't she just let me be?
