You don’t need to know me
To know me.
All you need to do
Is read my words,
Because the answer
Is hidden in the ink.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

So true. I love this. When we write our own words, we pain or write it with our souls. We put ourselves in it, when we write. We put who we are, in it. I love this. You have a talent and greatness in you. You're a wonderful and talented writer and person. I don't know when this was, probably a LONG TIME AGO, but congrats on having this published! :) You deserve it. Thank you so much, for sharing this. :)

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."

This is great! Good job!

Check out my work? Thanks and please keep writing.

This is so much like me! People at school say I'm the quiet girl and the nerdy girl because I write a lot but its so true! If they would take the time to read my words, they would see the real me. Thank you for your words!

So true! A lot of my friends think they know me, but they don't. I pour my soul out in my writing. If only they'd read it.....or maybe not. :)
