Life is a book of poetry that I have continued writing over the course of three years. I write about love, and loss, and I will tell you that most of the poems have a pretty interesting story that follows them because they are written based on experience. I wrote Life to show other teens that there are others out there going through what they are. Others that feel the pain they do, but that there are also others that care. I wrote it so that other teens don’t have to go through life alone. I feel that growing up, friendships play a big part in shaping those teens into what they eventually become, and that no child, teen or adult should ever feel alone. I am nowhere near adulthood, but I want to make a difference, I want to reach out to other teens that feel the way I did. Hopefully my writing will change some of their lives, the way the poets of the past and the everyday heroes in my life have made a difference in mine. I’ll leave you with one last saying, something that I will always remember where ever I go and something that was told to me by my parents, “In life, choose your friends, don’t let your friends choose you.” I hope you enjoy my view on Life.
