I was born in Des Moines Iowa 15 years ago and lived in various parts of Iowa ever since! I now live in Rolfe Iowa. I am only 15 years old but I would say that I am quite mature for my age. I wrote my poem 'Grandma' for my Grandmother when I first was told that she was diagnosed with cancer! My Grandma died shortly a month after. I was very glad to have written this poem for my Grandma and was pleased to read it at her funeral to share with everyone who loved her as much as I did and still do! ! !
