    This poem is dedicated to my uncle who has stepped in and played the most important role he ever could. He has acted and done everything a father should.

  • Chicago Curiousity

    After being in Chicago, IL for the first semester of college for a class we had to describe our Chicago story. I decided to write a poem because I have always loved poetry. I even added a video to this poem, but for the purposes of sharing it, I just wanted to share the poem itself. I love Chicago, at times it is difficult. Some people don't see its underbelly, the dark side of it. However, most times if you are in the right spot it is beautiful and there is always a place to be explored. I live in St. Louis, MO and ever since I was little I would come up to Chicago with my family every winter and summer. However, after my mother passed away in 2012, we suddenly stopped going. Once I came back about 4 years later, I felt different, as if something was missing. This poem is about how I a still looking for things to see, things to do, and most importantly find myself as I live in Chicago for the next four years.
