Maya Morrow was born in San Jose, California to two mathematicians who had fled the segregated, civil rights-era South to create a new life in the San Francisco Bay Area. Safe within the cocoon of her middle class surroundings—both parents had long careers in technology—she understood both parents' emphasis on the importance of formal education and reading books, choosing instead to test the boundaries of her very structured, controlled environment and cultivate her rebellious and adventurous nature. “I’ve always expressed myself by writing, for as long as I can remember,” Morrow says. Her first published book is the brutally honest, autobiographical coming-of-age work titled Silicon Valley Girl: My Adolescent Life and Times, and an Ode to ...more

some old poems I wrote

24 September 2003

And no one is coming to rescue me

Jivin’ to Andre 3000 || Ice Cold !

 

Baby’s got me hangin’ on a string

Back & forth he makes me swing

He watches with a heavy sigh

He’s happy when he says goodbye

 

Baby spins me round and round

And never wants to settle down

He speaks of love with his last breath

His final kiss, the kiss of death

 

Through my hardest days I will not find you

“I feel strange...I really don't know what I am. In mind I'm almost a woman, in body a young woman. I am almost a woman, but what am I now? I'm no child. I am mature. I know much; I'm somewhere in between. I'm confused--that's what I am. One day I'll long for a baby in my arms or a man's strong arms to hold me...the next, for freedom, respect.”
Maya Morrow, Silicon Valley Girl: My Adolescent Life and Times, and an Ode to Generation X

“Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“...If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours...If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden
