She works full time as a customer care consultant / orders processor for a book distributing company.

"I have Bipolar Disorder and ADHD, so growing up was quite challenging at times, although I was only diagnosed when I was sixteen.

I have always loved words - singing, reading, writing - so that’s where I found solace. Writing was the perfect outlet for my depression and anger, and I found I was quite good at it.

His Eyes...

His eyes tell a story
I can never understand,
for I have not seen
what they've seen.

His hands speak of things
I can never comprehend,
for mine have not
laboured like his have.

The lines on his face
speak of things
I cannot fathom,
for I have not
known such things.

His skin, pigmented
and aged by years
of sun exposure,
tells of events
I cannot perceive;
for I have not
witnessed such
atrocities.
