I have been writing since I was about 4 years old. Although, poetry didn't exist to me then, it was all about short stories and fictions. As time went on and I learned rhyming, I began to write poetry around 1st or 2nd grade. My poems then were of course simple, but I loved all types of writing and continued to write when I was upset, bored, tired, confused, or just in my free time for fun. People have always been real supportive of my work and one even tried to help me get one of my novels published in 8th grade, but with the military I moved a lot and the paper work took way too long to receive. I am guessing it was lost somewhere.

School was always a place which stirred up a lot of untold emotions and thoughts. Where I went to school all the way until freshmen year, I was looked down upon for being "different ". The children would say so themselves. I became accustomed to the name freak and daily verbal tormenting from others to the point where I got into physical fights with the boys. I of course wasn't the instigator. I did not once flame them in my writing; I only wrote about how they were in the sleeping state of darkness in the cave, and I was walking toward the light. With all their torment I never once let it drag me down, it only showed me more and more how I was on a higher level of thinking and understanding the world around me. And thus I wrote.

Now that I am 16, I have moved and the military has promised none other. Still, I relied on no person to bare my soul's thoughts or ideas. Though I had the greatest friends at the college, I still relied more on my writing than anything else. I shared my philosophies and my observations with others, but only when asked which was surprisingly rare. As I began to study english and analyzing literature, I began to really enjoy the hidden meanings of the author's and in returning to my hometown from age 4, the opportunities for me grew. In science, philosophy, literature, I had to know more. Though, I still have not formally studied poetry, I write, and I write. But when reading it, do expect symbols, analogies, and archetypes. I find them quite entertaining. :)
