After a while you learn the difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul. You learn that love isn't leaning but lending support. You begin to accept your defeat with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child. You decide to build your roads on today, for tomorrow's ground is too uncertain. You help someone plant a garden instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.....

    


The above poem is called "Life's Lessons," Author Unknown


Hello, my name is Deborah and I have been on AuthorsDen for 7 years.  I write poetry, various generes.  I started writing poetry while in college and picked it up again '2007'.  Many of my poems are stories.  I write about experiences and what I am passionate about.


I have been married for 18 years and my children are Reaper, Snickers and Baby. All were found outside,(cats.)



"I have three other sisters, two older and one younger than I. Although, we live in different states we keep in touch weekly.




I was born in Chicago, Illinois.  My parents have passed away.




When I was twelve I knew I wanted to be a writer, but my life had taken many twists and turns before I really became serious about writing.


My mother bought my first typewriter when I was in high school.



Why do I write? For myself, writing has a calming effect and I find myself at peace. I try to instill my thoughts and ideas into my poetry.
Writing gives me structure and discipline as well.
A writer must experience life...not only his life
but, observe others as well...before he starts writing. A writer writes always...



I was always going to the library with my younger sister. I love books! Actually, I have a small library and I'm way behind in my reading. My favorites are nonfiction, biographies, mysteries, erotica and I'm sure a few more.



I attended Thornton Jr. College, Harvey, Il. It later moved to South Holland Il. and renamed South
Suburban College. I received an Associate of Arts Degree. I majored in Social work and minored in Sociology. I did not go into Social work, learned many things about what people struggle with.




There are many fine authors here. Many are from different parts of the world, giving you their views from as far away as South America and Europe. Technology: From paperwork to computers. Never thought one day I would be communicating with people from different states, or countries such as, England, Belgium, South Africa.


My reasons for enjoying Authors Den: I like their
setup, the tools they provide which allows one to
communicate with any said author no matter where they live.


I have made many friends here... .. .



"Thank you for taking time in reading my bio and my poetry. May you find something that comforts you, makes you cry, better yet a hardy laugh. Whatever you find in my poetry may you keep coming back for more.
