My name is Melissa Williamosn and I have been enamered with poetry since I was a child. It gave me a voice to express all the emotions that were inside of me, that were hidden form the rest of the world. In paper I could put down all my hopes, fears, dreams, and feeling about the world and life. Literature and poetry have always been my escape and my refuge, like shelter in a storm I hid in its safety. I am an English major, but most important a wife and mother. My poetry is not perfect, but it comes from my heart.
