Hello! Thank you for reading my bio and poetry. I hope you find something that strikes a chord in your heart.

A lot of my poetry (or perhaps all) centers around emotions, specifically pain and heartache. This is both intentional and happenstance. I've experienced a lot of unusual and difficult emotions in seventeen years of living, many stemming from family trauma and the resulting mental health issues. Not all of my poems are sad, however, and I want all of them to have a hopeful undertone. My poetry is created because I am trying to make sense of the world and the way I feel about it and sometimes choose to share it.

I only write for me and that's how I feel all writers should be. I like learning that I'm not alone in this world and I want others to know they aren't either. :)

If you need someone to talk to, I am here for you!

Stay alive -/

~iwillbedauntless

P.S. I feel like most of my bio was sadness but really, I am a happy person :) poetry is my sadlet (sad-outlet) but I have many happylets! Nerdfighteria, reading, shooting, motocross, roller derby, singing, volunteering, crafting, making jewelry, hiking, running, being a normal teenage girl :D

P.P.S. My username is inspired by Divergent by Veronica Roth. "Dauntless" is a group of people who are dedicated to protection and service. I am an extremely loyal person and because I struggle with an anxiety disorder, courage is oft' lacking. My username is a reminder to myself that even though I have difficulties I will still be Dauntless.

This poem is one that is too relatable! Read it and decide if you want to do something about it, or just want to ignore the story the poem is telling. Peom is WAY better than summery. Please read the bit in bold, too, as it is just as important as the poem itself!
