I started writing 5 years ago when one Christmas I couldn't afford gifts for my 2 kids. Instead I wrote them each a poem. "Always My Baby", and "Blue Eyed Baby Boy". Since then I've been writing. I was in a very abusive relationship, and writing was my only escape. I've managed to get off drugs and start a new and better life. I want to share my story with others. Not all of them are true. I try to put myself in other people's situations and turn negative into a positive.
