I'm from Columbus, Ohio, USA- the Midwest. I grew up never lacking necessities, but always craving more. At a young age I found my outlet in writing poetry and creative writing. I've gone through so many journals in my life. I am a sensitive, emotional individual and I think that comes across in my writing. A few years ago my friend - who was in a band - was writing song lyrics. She said to give it a try. At first I was reluctant thinking there was no way I could write anything of value. After a short amount of time I realized that in actuality, everything I write - you write - they write - we write... is of extreme value. And importance. We must always speak our minds... and the ones who do that through music- keep doing it. You, me, they, we need to be heard.
