"The first poem I ever wrote was in seventh grade, on the day I got out of juvenile hall. Since then I haven't gotten into any trouble. Poetry's kept me in a good light and around good people. It opens new doors you didn't know you had. The more you write, the more you understand yourself and how you work. It let me know I had something to say." -- Robin
From Robin's poem "Cinnamon Toast"
all I ever wanted was peace and love for my family, to be sweet like reeses cups. but we were poor like syrup broke like bones, livin in a house with no lights on.
