Author. Poet. Optimist. Friend. Falling in love with writing was not intentional—it developed and evolved for Denele over time.
Denele has always loved words and the way they can describe an accumulation of feelings. Poetry is her preferred mode of writing as it helps to enact feeling and enliven experiences. Her work tends to focus on the emotions, spirits, and moods of self and others evoked by various circumstances.
Although she didn't set out to be a poet, there was a time in her life where she needed to escape the reality of relationship abuse and her anger issues. At the time, she was not ready to discuss her emotions and decided to use her words on paper as an outlet. To her surprise, the more she wrote, the more she enjoyed expressing herself with written words. Her influences are everything she sees, feels, and experiences.

In my former life
I wore tattered wings
which created in me low self-esteem,
wanting to please everyone and I was nervous about everything.
Years upon years, I battled not choosing me over them
forcing depression, wearing a mask, and holding it all in.
My eyes were closed blocking my tears;
Not living, masking all emotion including fear.
In my current state There’s hope…. I’m living, I’m dreaming, I’m moving
I am in love with me and all of my possibilities.
I may sound conceited or just plain stuck on myself
But if I’m not, then neither will anyone else.
Loving ME is imperative
and with that there will be happiness unlike any other
Throughout this journey
obstacles and situations were encountered
But seeing that it’s all just a part of life
I used these struggles to gain wisdom and knowledge
And didn’t dwell on the heartache and strife
So far I’ve had an interesting life to juggle
But now I see my future is bright
and I’m not afraid to struggle
Yes, so far I’ve had an interesting life
But now that my wings have been mended….I’m ready to take flight!
