Overview

I LOOK BACK AT THE FIRST TIME I FOUND MYSELF WRITING A LYRICAL POEM AT THE AGE OF 12, TO EXPRESS MY INNERMOST FEELINGS FOR A BLONDE HAIRED, BLUE EYED, COUNTRY GIRL IN SCHOOL. BEING SHY, I FOUND MYSELF WRITING A POEM TO HER THAT WOULD SOMEHOW TOUCH HER PRECIOUS HEART.

WHAT I MEANT FOR PERSONAL COMMUNICATION SOMEHOW FOUND ITS WAY TO AN AGENCY AND I WAS SIGNED AND PUBLISHED AT THE AGE OF 18. THE FOLLOWING FEW YEARS WERE ENVELOPED BY A STORMY RELATIONSHIP, CUSTODY BATTLE, AND FINALLY A PRISON SENTENCE.

DURING THESE SO-CALLED SILENT YEARS, I CONTINUED TO WRITE TO EXPRESS THE PERSONAL EXPERIENCES IN MY OWN LIFE AND THE LIVES OF SPECIAL PEOPLE THAT I CAME IN CONTACT WITH. SOME OF THESE SPECIAL PEOPLE EXPRESSED JOY IN MY PRESENCE, WHILE OTHERS SHED TEARS OF HIDDEN PAIN.

TO THE SPECIAL PEOPLE OF WHOM I WRITE; YOUR LIFE IS A TREASURE WITH UNLIMITED WORTH. SHOULD YOU REMEMBER MY NAME AND FEEL A SPECIAL TOUCH OF A POEM, IT MIGHT JUST HAVE BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT YOU.

About the Author

At the age of 12 Andrew Alegria found himself composing a lyrical poem to express his feelings for a blonde, blue-eyed, country girl in school. Being shy, he found himself writing a poem to her that, he hoped, might touch her precious heart. What he intended as personal communication somehow found its way to an agency and he was signed and published at the age of 18. The next few years were enveloped by a stormy relationship, a custody battle and, finally, a prison sentence. In the years following Andrew continued to write to express the personal experiences in his own life and in the lives of those special people that he came into contact with.
