    my first poem was about the grandmother i never knew
    i must have been about 10
    i found that writing was my way of "getting out"
    so i've been writing since then...
    i discovered Langston Hughes on my own
    read about his life including "Big Sea"
    i always wrote in lowercase and thought it unique
    until i stumbled into nikki giovanni
    and now i just love to read and write
    and grow and listen and realize that it is a gift
    from God...
    poetry is the main reason why I'm sane today...
