About the Author
Veronica Thornton a.k.a. Vee was always gifted with the art of verbal and written communication although she was never a big talker yet quite the observer and listener.
Vee currently resides in Cleveland, Ohio is a survivor of domestic violence and mother of two. In her youth she wrote notes to herself and others when she could not verbalize what she was feeling. Many thought her writings to be poetic and inspiring in nature. Her empathetic feelings caused her to keep writing later in life as a way to release all the emotions and questions that were presented to her that otherwise remained nonverbal. While most of her writings remained private it was during her educational pursuits Vee was strongly encouraged to pursue a writing career due to her versatility in topics, styles and ability to articulate her thoughts in a clear, creative yet relatable manner.
Vee is a member of the OAC along with belonging to various online poetry groups. Vee has previously contributed to online magazines along with being included in a poetic anthology and compilation of stories and poems for domestic violence.
Preface . . .
Who Am I
I’m the caterpillar that turns into the butterfly
I’m the whispering in the winds when you walk by
I’m the light behind the twinkling in your eyes
I’m sometimes the conscious you despise
I can be your worst nightmare or your best friend
I can help end life or help it begin
I’ll be there when you lose and there when you win
I can keep an open-mind or give a swift kick in the behind
I’m your relief when you are stressed
I’m the ears that listen to the releasing of your unrest
Divinely created I am a woman truly blessed.
We are thrilled to announce the release of Veronica’s debut collection of poetry Universal Colloquies Inside of Me available November 18th 2015.
