About the Author
LeJuane Bowens was born on July 30,1981 in Detroit, Michigan and moved to Lima, Ohio in 1986 where he went to school and later graduated Lima Senior High in June of 2000.Thinking that he didn't have a chance to get in college, he joined the U.S.Army in August of the same year. Throughout the six years of being in the service, and being deployed to Iraq on two different occasions, he started to put his thoughts on paper. Once starting out as only doing poems of love and lonliness, he started to understand that there is more than life than just two emotions and begin to write about almost everything he felt covered the very aspect of life itself in his eyes. But it was in the year of 2005 when a friend and fellow poet/writer Keith A. Anderson asked him to take his writing more seriously and try to show the world what he has to say. After deciding to take the advice,LeJuane put a few of his poems on the internet via poetry sites and the feedback that came back from the people that read each one was more than enough to let him know that this may be his calling. Through poetry, he feels that he can pull people into his world by branching out to them by explaining what he feels are pieces of human nature and will that put together what we all call life. The only thing he wants to achieve is the same thing that everyone wants when they have something on their mind. And that is to only be heard.
