I’m a business writer by day, but I’m a creative at heart. I write poetry and inspirational stories and then mix them with music and positive vibes. Why? Because I’m called to do it. After my mom’s illness, I had to admit to myself that I wasn’t living my best life. I was standing on the sidelines, afraid to express myself, afraid to let my creative voice come out.

My mom's health continued to decline, and I was in crisis mode for over a year. During that time, I instinctively started writing poetry while waiting around in hospitals. Writing was my way out of the sadness, and I began to see a pattern in my poetry. There were little glimpses of hope. Even the dark poems I wrote seemed to end with a bright or positive message. Those small positive feelings grew, and this passion project was born. A more authentic way of living began to manifest as I turned my struggles into strength.

I want to live in the moment.
I want to tell stories, share poems, and vibe to music playlists.
I want to find my tribe and connect with people.
I want to explore mindfulness, gratitude, and positivity.
I want to find more meaning and happiness in my life (and share that journey with others).

If you need a dose of positivity and want to start a personal growth journey, then Let the Verse Flow is for you. But let’s have fun with it! Let’s get creative about personal growth by tapping into stories, poetry, and music. I invite you to join my community, share your voice and live your best life, one beat at a time.

Please enjoy my reflections from the bright side of the beat.
