Life Can Be a Great Teacher...

Poetry is a beautiful art form. My Uncle Remon encouraged me to use this art form to express myself and serve as an outlet during a difficult time in my life.

Interestingly, I began reciting poetry in the mid '80's and writing in the early '90's. Poetry was an release for me; it was like therapy and now it is my mode of relaxation and reflection. I am inspired by many writers and poets such as: Edgar Allen Poe, José Martí, Langston Hughes, Dr.  Maya Angelou, and Se7en The Poet.

Life can be a great teacher if we have the right attitude regarding being a learner and apply the lessons only it can teach. In life we are faced with defining moments, moments of indecision that ultimately become moments of decision. We have choices and we must choose wisely. We have all been there, wondering which way to go.
