Dear Grace,

It's really good to hear back from you like always it made my day! Girl why are you depressed??? Keep strong and shake it off because you're a great loving strong young lady Grace. Take one day at a time and keep a lovely smile on your beautiful face.

I'm really glad and happy to know that you did post 7 of your poems on Facebook. You going to have people that love your poems and you going to have people that will not and you going to have haters. So don't like any of that mess get in your way. Within a week or two post some more to let people know that you not giving up because you know you are a great poet. I'm asking you please Grace don't give up please don't.

I think you should get out more and it wouldn't be a bad idea to get into summer activities so you can meet new people. I do understand that you wish you had responsibilities you will be 18 before you know it.

Alright, I'll answer the questions now!

1) That's a really good question because, I really don't know. I guess to work harder on my school work and I will achieve it by studying harder and setting more hours.

2) My goal for this year is to spend more time with family and getting to know you better as a person once I am set free and to get my poems out there to the world by posting them on Facebook and self-publishing my book.

3) The most meaningful relationship I ever had is with my mom and my brother Mark they are my best friends they have never put me down and have always love and care for me.

4) I'm sorry Grace I really don't know.

5) Yes I believe so.

I have some questions for you now and I really hope they ain't too personal.

1) Do you believe there is life after death???

2) How do you see life???

3) Who has influence your life in a big way???

4) The way the world is going do you believe the rich get richer and the poor poorer???

5) Do you believe we live in a world of abundance or scarcity???

6) Have you told your family about me??? If so how do they feel about us writing through my blog page???

That's all for now, I ain't going to kill you with 21 questions at all. Grace like I said before don't give up on your poetry and let the haters hate. WHENEVER YOU CAN GO ON GOOGLE AND LOOK FOR SOME WEBSITES YOU CAN POST SOME OF YOUR POEMS FOR FREE TO REACH OTHER PEOPLE TO GET YOUR WORK AND NAME OUT THERE.


"I Choose"

To live by choice, not by chance.
To make changes, not excuses.
To be motivated, not manipulated.
To excel, not compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self-pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice.
Not the random opinions of others!

"The Inside"

I'm feeling sad and alone, so
I thought I would send you a picture to show you so,
I love you so, so you know
I'm thinking of you all the time, so
I wish I could be with you so,
But the answer is no.
I turn as white as snow, so you know.
As long as I live you will be
So now I know one day it will be so
Then I'll never be alone so.

I will send you some other ones, I wrote that you ain't seen. And they are new but they are on a religion level though :(. I'm going to end for now and hope to hear back from you soon. Grace, stay strong and take care of yourself beautiful lady. :) SMILE!!

Always a friend,

Jack M. Branch
