Camp NaNo - April & July 2020

April & July 2019 Camp NaNo

There are many struggles in life, but for me, sometimes it's finding the words to place onto the page. Writing is away to create new worlds, explore, and experience so many different emotions. Also to tell stories that matter. With reading we learn not only to write, but certain stories and characters will change us through out our lives. A proud Greek Latina. I’m Christy from South Texas.

I’m From Who I Used To Be by Christy V.

I’m from the early fireworks

In the star filled summer night sky

I’m from the bluebonnets

Blooming in the southern spring

I’m from the historic city

I’m from the coastal town

I’m not anything I used to be

She was the girl that followed a boy

She checked out often a stack of books

Did dance lessons, theater, guitar, piano

Wrote articles once a month, once a week

She fell for boys who never saw her

I still remember that girl

She had a list of best friends

Narrowed down as years went by

She began to guard herself

No one knew why

Every step led her to

Push away her fears and tears

To the path of who she wanted to be

Her voice to sing, write, and inspire

Hold the key to all her responsibilities

Shows her who she could be

I’m from where dreams grow
