Unfortunately, there are many parents who have to face a child's addiction. As I dealt with my own daughter's addiction and my feelings about the addiction and her, I found poetry to be a helpful release. Here are the poems that I wrote ... Here is hoping they find a home in another's heart ...
I started writing poetry at 13, and have been writing ever since. I believe with poetry, hearts and minds can be opened and the world can be changed. I want to change the world! I am the mother of two beautiful girls and the grandmother of one lovely young lady. I teach to earn a living, but my passion has always been to write. My other passion is Spanish, and 10 years ago I began writing poetry in Spanish as well. There are books waiting for me in that lovely language as well!
