Biography

I’m just a girl , living in a small minded world , who was gifted with the ability to effortlessly write what we can not speak across pages few still read . This book is a tribute to a dying genre of writing , my beloved poetry. Inspired by Elizabeth Barrett Browning , Robert Frost , Edgar Allen Poe , and R.M Drake .

Into The Night

Into the night , my soul evolves Trying to understand it all The obscene gestures of the current times Terrorism being the header of every head line A world filled with chaos and devastation Fear stretching across the many nations Nudity , drugs , and sex seem to be all the clout But shouldn’t there be bigger and better things to converse about Riddled by the confusion , a browser controls our humanity Instead of holding off crusades , we’re witnessing world tragedies Too focused on a screen to open our hearts and minds To what conflict resolution can we as humans define ? Afraid of artificial intelligence , yet that’s what we have become In the age of 2019 the human race is dumb No longer building rockets , to explore the night beyond Chained to our computers to which we’ve grown so fond Society is blinded , though we type and voice and stream We’re exactly where they want us and no where in between Held hostage by the internet , we follow every trend Spending money on the none sense , this cycle has no end And as I sit and wonder where all the dreamers have escaped I find my self trouble summed by humanities newest fate The world is passing by , right outside your front door And with out adventure you’ll never find what you’re looking for No browser will help you , no WiFi strong enough to connect For with out the world around you , humanity is just a lost concept

Yes I pine the good old days.That is why I love classic poems.Despite its significance modernity has eroded so many things on its wake.Keep on penning such interesting poems.
