Biography of louis rams

i was born of hispanic heritage.
my mother was from puerto rico, and my father from spain.i had started writing poetry at an early age.
but! it was not manly to write poetry, so i gave it up for many years.and i was brought back to writing again when i got out of the army and met one of my fellow servicemens father in illinois.
he was a poet to be reckoned with.!
i had misplaced my poems when i moved to florida
(about 100 of them) so i started a new collection.
everything that i write is what i call poetic stories
that most anyone can relate to.

POEMS ARE TO THE MIND, AS LOVE IS TO THE SOUL
SIT AND READ, AND LIFE UNFOLDS.
the words and stories were given to me so that i could
write them down-for all the world to see.



my personal quotes and beliefs are listed below

1) 'poetry in motion with spiritual devotion'
2) 'happy is he who has not any, but in his heart he
has plenty'
3) 'with the light of day, the night is taken away
and with the rise of dawn, a new day is born'
4) two hearts that beat as one will always overcome

Womens Flowing Tears

(these are the thoughts of women when they thought
i could not hear them over the years.)
womens flowing tears
i want all the world to see all the feelings inside of me
feelings of love, disappointments and fears all of which create my tears
tears are our ' escape valves ' from the past and even now.
tears are like water faucets which can be controlled to release the pressure
built up inside- pressures which we try to hide.
tears that flow which only a woman may know.
