• This Is Who I Am

    Fashion provides a desire that can run much deeper than the material it is made of. Inspiration is often sprung from certain aspects of your look. Simply looking at one piece of clothing or an accessory can bring about a uniqueness that only you can display to the world.

    Perhaps, I am a dreamer of sorts, but I know inspiration first hand. I am a creator of words, much like fashion is the creator of art. Coursing through my veins is the love of words and desire to craft something that will inspire those who read them.

     

    I have long been a writer, since the age of 9. I found a world within my words that took me to a special place that brought me comfort and joy. We all have a story of sorts to be written. For me, my story of life’s journey has been written in the form of poetry.

    I have a tendency to write with all I am, as writing is a passion that I cannot deny. Although poetry is my home, I have also ventured out into the world of writing. Craving to create words in all forms, I successfully built a creative writing freelance business. When making the decision to journey down this path, I knew I wanted to indulge in all areas of writing.

     

    This, for me, brought a large amount of growth, which has brought my creative writing to a whole new level. When you are able to take yourself outside of your comfort zone and use your skill set to create new things, you become a master of your craft. I write anything and everything. From blogs to articles, manuals to policies I have done it all.

    Amazingly, I drove so deeply into strengthening my skills that I did this in just a year’s time. Within 9 months of stepping out into the world of freelance writing, I quit my full time job. I had successfully built a business that continues to thrive. While I love writing anything and everything, writing books and poetry is by far my favorite type of writing. I have several books published on amazon, and the accomplishment of sharing my words with the world is like no other.

     

    All of this started with a dream. A little girl loving the creativity of words. Being so inspired by the beauty that can be formed, that she never gave up. My poetry is the keeper of my heart and soul, and I proudly published my first collection of poetry weeks ago on Amazon. This collection, for me, is possibly the most important piece I will ever publish. It is simply because the dream of publishing my poetry has long been with me.

    With ever new dawn, comes a new thought of creativity. My greatest joy comes from knowing the world is hearing my voice. I long to inspire and give hope through the experiences in which I have encountered in my lifetime, because poetry was my voice when I didn’t have one. Now the world can hear my voice, and I hope to help others find theirs.

     

    We all have a story, we all have circumstances. We muddle along in life, dreaming and hoping those dreams will come true. I took my story and combined them with all my hopes and dreams, and I am now able to share with you the experience that has molded me into the person I am.

    My poetry collection, “This Is Who I Am” is now available at Amazon.com. Someday I aspire to travel the world and bring others the hope and inspiration they need to overcome life’s adversity. My greatest desire, is helping others take back their voice, which was stolen from them. This poetry collection is the silent voice in which the world never heard until now.

    From This Is Who I am

     

    I’m just a girl
    I am just a girl,
    Nothing special about me.

    A giver,
    Who loves passionately.

    A friend,
    Who is always ready to meet your demands.

    A writer,
    Who will craft words till the day I die.

    A believer,
    That all things in life happen for a reason.

    I’m just a girl,
    That is me.
    Pretty ordinary.

    I had a dream
    Of becoming more.

    I was kicked upon.
    I was told it would never happen.

    Self doubts,
    I believe them.

    But the passion would not die.
    There was always a spark within me.

    Just waiting to ignite
    To set the world on fire.

    To bring so much passion,
    That all the world will know my name.

    To love unconditionally.
    To give more than I gain.

    Though my journey is hard,
    I will fight to ensure my task are complete.

    That tiny little dream,
    Turned into a life long obligation that I accept with open arms.

    The road I travel is not easy,
    But the rewards are vast .

    Each mountain I concur
    Leads to the next chapter of what is to come.

    I have already exceeded all that I thought I could ever be.

    Those who discouraged,
    Those who did not believe,

    They no longer matter
    Because I found my will.

    I overcome the pain
    Of being nothing.

    I found the strength to become more.
    To surpass the boundaries they set for me.
    I’m just a girl.
    There is nothing special about me.

    But I believed in a dream,
    A dream that is a passion,
    And I made that passion a reality.

    Really,
    I’m just a girl.
    Nothing but ordinary,
    But I broke my boundaries
    And I believed in becoming more.
