I am 31 years old and live in the UK after moving here from the states when I was 8. I write poems to help me through. I tend to only write when I am feeling down or dealing with emotion I struggle with. I live with depression, I feel I'm doing good. If I'm posting a lot on here its probably because I'm not doing so good. I write from the heart and for my heart not to be a 'good writer' I'm not that conceited.
