I'm a mom of three of my own and two great step-children. I have a loving husband named Earl! I live in Maine, where I have been my whole life! I have a bad past of domestic violence from my first husband. But a great life now! I have made mistakes and learned from them. And knowing my past has made me a better person.

Where I’m From / Poetry


My poem is about my life, how it started, how it was and how it is now. To show that no matter what you can come back from the past. This poem was modeled after the original “Where I’m From” poem by George Ella Lyon.
