I was born in the country of Brazil. When, I don't quite know, but I do know that I was born in the streets of Rio des Janeiro to a teenage mother. I was adopted by a Christian American family, at about 5 yrs of age, where I was asked to make up a name, age, and birth date. Since I was a child in a foreign country with no one to communicate with, I gravitated towards grammar and language. For some reason, I was able to comprehend the English language and  structure more easily through poetry. My favorite being, Robert Frost! I love poetry cause in a way, it explains an emotion, thought, or just plain life, in ways no other written language can! I'm so thankful for sights like these. It's sad because poetry, I believe, is becoming a dying art. Sights like these keep it alive and well with fans and poets like ourselves!
