My real name is Amanda, but but my friends call me Dee.I am an Asian-American high school science teacher.I write poetry only when the spirit moves me. These poems that I have submitted were written during significant times in my life. The one poem Questions seems different from the others that I written, and it is. Its irregular rhythm is supposed to reflect the irratic behavior. I encourage any suggestions to improve my work. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did writing them.
