When I was a youngster, I used to practice rhyming words all the time. Sometimes when I would talk to people, I would rhyme all my sentences kind of like a freestyle rap or poem, yet it was conversation. My friends asked how in the world I did that, but it just came natural to me like I was born to be a poet. I started writing poetry and I learned that I could get very deep with my writing. I actually found that I wrote my best poetry when I had enjoyable temperature control settings. I discovered that the best temperature control settings in the school were in the library, so I went to the library often instead of playing with my buddies all the time. I would make time for my friends, but I easily preferred the library, especially in the hot season with ice-cold air conditioning. Rarely would my parents ever crank up the AC system at home, and that made it challenging for me to focus on writing or my homework for that matter. That was until I asked them if I could have a window AC unit for my birthday one year. I thought they would reject my request, but surprisingly they got it for me. I was so happy when my father hooked up my window AC unit. Of course, I still went to the library as often as possible to enjoy their climate control without increasing the energy costs at home, but that window AC unit certainly was a game changer for me. I focused more on writing and poetry. Eventually, I put together some poetry books and had them published. I still am making money off those books today and I even have a few novels under my belt now.
