PROMPT- Write a love letter to poetry

Poetry taught me to listen to my own tears. Decipher why I felt what I felt. It helped me hold onto myself during my darkest fights with depression. If you could write a love letter to poetry what would it say? Feel free to write one and leave a link to it in my comment…

#BeREAL : BlogHer and GoDaddy

I had the chance recently to go to BlogHer. I got an email stating I had won one of the Voice of the Year Awards.  I almost trashed it thinking it was spam but I when I saw the link they included was my #BeREAL piece I paused.  I read it.  I looked up BlogHer…
