  • Always Faithful

    It seems for most people poems are words that rhyme or simply thoughts from the heart. For me life has many passions; poetry is one of mine, just as I am passionate about leading an active lifestyle. From the Marine Corps or a recent tough mudder my passion towards fitness isn't turned on. I unleash it, which is to say I approach poetry the same. "Always Faithful" is a timeline. As for my inspiration, one I will call "Mi Libro," the other my cousin Jeska Trevino. Is life full of irony or bitterness? I'll take irony. It's easier on the heart. Semper Fidelis.

  • Heaven's Handwritten Calligraphy

    November 14, 2014. Cristian saw her as he entered the room. The words just came out naturally, "You look beautiful." The music started playing. He had never danced with a female before, and all he knew was from youtube. He asked her to dance, and it was a beautiful mess. A few songs later, he tried again, and they danced throughout the night into the morning. Dancing with her was priceless because she was precious to him. This experience is where the heart and soul of "Heaven's Handwritten Calligraphy" comes from.

    I was born and raised in Miami, FL. I live with my two parents. My mother works as a medical laboratory technologist, and my father is a former taxi driver. I am now in tenth grade, currently attending North Miami Beach Senior High School. I started writing poems at the age of eleven.

  • Daddy

    This poem is written specifically to my dad. My dad passed away due to suicide and mental disorders. He took his life away and I never got to explain to him how much I loved him. He passed away on July 10 of 2018. He locked himself in his truck and taped off each air vent and then put a hose in his truck that was connected to his gas so the gas could put him to sleep. My dad was the most caring person in the world. He always put others before him and no matter how upset things made him, he would put on a smile to make others feel better. Suicide has impacted my life so much and I wish I could have done more to help him get through his struggles.
