I am 15 years old, and I have dreamed of being an author for a very long time. This is the very first poem I have ever sent in for a contest and the Leauge of American Poets sent me a letter saying that they want it published in an anthology. I was so excited when I found out. My first thought was, My dreams are finally coming true.
My family tells me that I have an extreme talent in that area, but I don't have the self-confidence to believe it. So when I see all of the comments I get on FaithWriters I feel accepted for what I write.
The key to writing is finding what is deep down in your heart pulling it out and putting it into words.
I thank God for the gift that He has given me and with every breath that I take I will give thanks that I have the chance every day to change somebodys life for the better.
