M.J. Moores reblogged this on and commented:

Charlotte CuevasA walking stereotype, Charlotte Cuevas is exactly what you'd expect from a children's librarian and freelance writer- most days you'll find her bustling about here and there, balancing coffee and a stack of books, fingers stained with ink and pearls jangling. She's quite serious about poetry, literature, personal growth, and figuring out how to rebuff society's standards when she's most content fitting right into them. The 365 Poetry Project is Charlotte's attempt to push herself to a greater mastery of the craft, as opposed to her wonderful penchant for writing “whenever I feel like it.” She in no way claims that it was her idea; only that it feels like something she need to do. http://charlottecuevas.wordpress.com

Thank You

Dear Stepfather –

You were tall, dark, and handsome. You were change; you were a breath of fresh air. My world began anew when you gallantly walked into my life. 412 more words
