Author has written 28 stories for Family, General, Life, Religion, Nature, General, Politics, War, and Love.

I write to express myself. If someone else can relate to it, bonus. Let me know in the reviews. Technical criticism, while appreciated, will likely go unheeded. Prose needs structure and can always use an edit or another draft. This is poetry, and it's meant to be exactly the way it is.

For the record, I really did lose my mom and little brother in an accident in 2002, and I really did go to Iraq in 2004. I've lived in a few different states, a couple different countries, and now I'm back home. Life is pretty good these days (knock on wood, right?), so since I usually only write when very upset, I am now uninspired in the poetry department.

Let's keep it that way.

Thanks for visiting,

-Kelly

Deep Breath reviews
In a liberated society, we still wear shackles of our own making. But we still have our moments of freedom, if we can recognize them.

Altruism reviews
I stopped wanting to die at some point and am now more appreciative of life than ever- but I would still give it up, if I had to. Somewhat fictionalized, but based in my life.

Stronger reviews
I haven't figured out yet what people mean when they say things like "what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger." That's not quite right. Here's me trying to figure it out.

Paradox reviews
About someone very close to me, and a couple of lines in there are about me. We overlap a bit. Oh, and just so you all know the other person isn't an animated character :P

Talking to nobody reviews
The mother daughter bond can be severed, just like the bond between body and soul. That's all it took for my mom to leave me. Doesn't she care?

Inertia reviews
Tragedy ripped away everything I'd ever believed in, at least I thought so. Then I read about the Tao, and realized I suited it rather well. Whatever helps, right?

What Grace Is reviews
Some people admire what they see in her eyes, her posture, the set of her mouth. It's because they don't know any better. Now, I do know. For Denise
