Biography of Patricia Grantham

I have been writing poetry for over twenty years now. This collection of poems hopefully will inspire, encourage or uplift someone in their daily walk with life and that you will have an enriching and rewarding experience after reading them. I have also written poetry locally for family and friends. A poem titled A Land So Fair was printed on an obituary. Another titled My Quiet Corner was posted in a local newspaper over fifteen years ago and was also selected to appear in Mirrors of The Soul edition through the Modern Poetry Society in 1995. Numerous poems have also been recited at family reunions, social gatherings and various church functions. Additional poems titled A Faithful Friend and No Room For Hate(which was also selected as an International poem) were selected as Poems of the Day.

Philosophies in life are: Love of God, Fellowman and Preservation of Family. Hobbies are reading, listening to music, singing, writing lyrics for music, spending time with family & friends and taking long walks.

Special interests are: Tutoring, Mentoring, motivational speaking, volunteering and by all means writing poetry.

Many heartfelt thanks to all of you for taking time out of your busy schedules to read some of my works.

Be Encouraged

When you have been inspired to do great things in life
The road ahead will be filled with many a trouble and strife
You've tried to succeed many times but always seem to fail
Maybe the path you have taken is worn so try another trail

The path that is set before us is filled with many a gravel
There is many a curves set before us and can be difficult to travel
So don't give up and keep the faith, not accept failure as your fate
That is when success will step in and open
