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) .

Might I See My End?
I can finally see my end… Are those words a man should speak? Should a man know the date of his demise Or how his body would suffer?
Venom spitting from her lips, Her words filled with rage. Muscles very tense, Anger built with age.
I know I am in a field alone
Because I hear no one in the background
I can feel the wet grass as I am prone
I sniff the grass as if I were a hound
I hear the wind howl as I stand
It buffets my face without pain
I feel dirt and grit in my hands
It suddenly begins to rain
I hear the pitter-patter of it hitting the dirt
