Biography of Devon McElveen
I was born in Norwalk Hospital in Norwalk, Connecticut on April 3,1993. I started writing in 1st grade when my teacher gave us a writing assignment to see how well we wrote. Most people wrote nursery rhymes, but I wrote a short story of a crime that I had witnessed with my very eyes. My teacher had not seen such writing from a child of my age and I was soon transferred into accademically talented classes. I found that I was a gifted child who could write at the level of middle school pupils. As I grew older, my writing began to stregnthen and I began to write even deeper and leaned into the field of poetry Now, I am continuing to write as a practical way to relieve stress. Hopefully, my hobby will become something that I can pay bills with, and my name will be written into history as one of the best poets of my time. Also, my name, Devon, means poet (Celtic) .

I Never Knew Him
I never knew him, only knew of him.
He was a great man, a man who knew many things.
Caring, Compassionate, Cool, Collected.
Lies. All of it lies.
I knew the truth…who he really was:
He was a coward, and ran before I saw this side.
He never Took Time To Tell Tales of his past,
He never showed his emotions,
He never told his thoughts,
