I fell in love with reading when I was in the first grade and would spend countless hours traveling the world and meeting new characters through the pages of my favorite books. Reading has given me the inspiration to write poems. I believe in the mark that a meaningful poem or story can have on the lives of others, and understand the haven that certain works can provide for readers, a safety net from the storm outside. Every month I will share with you my favorite poem and what it means to me as well as my own poetry. Enjoy!
