I became deaf at age 3 and was adopted in a family that later became a broken home..I was sent away at age 4 because my family did not know what to do with me due to my deafness. as result of that..and my views of the world was very dark and hopeless..and I turned 17 thats when my world became a better place because I discovered poetry and one day I just jot down on a paper..my teacher came and asked if i had any traning or had any idea what i was doing which at the time I didn't..so she introduced me to poetry and handed me maya angelou which was her favorite poet. Right there I had an inkling that this would be my salvation and most of all my message to the world and hopes of a chain that can be broken free.

I am a deaf poet
