ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Adriana, and though I have a nickname, an American friend has told me I have a beautiful name, and uses only my full name. I am a woman, a dreamer who has a passion for life, and loves writing, and I must say, that I breathe words in and out.

I started writing in 2003, as I was internally urged on to do so. Poetry is a natural outcome of my life, and I felt that I was guided or maybe even destined to write, a feeling that took over and could not be stopped.

I love writing all types of poems and am glad when emails arrive from other people on the web, telling me that I put into words exactly the way they feel. Helping people is a nice way to forget about one's own personal problems and keep on going. Another reason that I have been writing is to improve my English. As English is not my native language, writing in English is another way to be even closer to this beautiful language. It has always come so naturally to me, that I can consider it a gift from Heaven.

I was born and raised in Brazil. In marriage, I spent some time in the USA with an American citizen. Sadly though, it did not work out, and I returned to my native land, Brazil. Memories of the time I lived there are nice, and one day I hope I am able to go back to that beautiful country to visit and enjoy all the good things it has to offer.

Teaching is what I do as an occupation and have a love for it, while writing is not only my love, but a hobby and a friend as well. As life's trials come I realize just how blessed I am in God and that He is everything to me.

My children are grown and are young adults now. One is currently living in Italy and works as an Architect, and the other is a psychologist and lives here, in São José dos Campos.

Soon, I will be a grandmother and will continue writing poetry and enlighten people's lives with my gift.

My ultimate dream is to have one of my original poems used as lyrics in a song, and then hear it on many radio stations.

It Takes Courage
Dri

To be bold, honest and sincere

It takes courage

When you are in danger

Or in pain

It takes lots of courage

To face life’s trials and survive

To look in the mirror every day

And see you’re getting older

But still capable of fighting back

And have the courage to move on

To fight for what you think is right

It takes courage to dream another dream

With the hopes of making it come true

To speak the truth, to be outspoken

And not worry about offending anyone

What’s right for you is not always right for others

It takes courage to start all over again

When everyone else is enjoying

What you once enjoyed

It takes courage to follow the road of uncertainty

When the street is foggy, no lights, no signs

No nothing..........

It takes courage to understand that

You’re never alone

Even when you look around

And see only emptiness

Yes, there are people, but they seem so cold

Sometimes it takes courage to live

To give up would be so much easier to do

It is hard to keep on going

When you don’t know where you are going

It takes courage to breath at times

When you feel like closing your eyes

It does take courage to pretend

You`re a fool

a tool for others

to get what they want

It takes courage

To live around people

Who are dead or deaf to your praises

You have no reason to rejoice

When darkness seems to swallow you up......

This is when you should be encouraged to believe

Believe that the dawn is about to come

And what was taken from you will return to you........

I know it takes a lot of courage to persevere

But, He didn`t say it would be easy.......

He said He would never let us walk alone.

And so I draw faith and hope from my heavenly Father

And I know He blesses me from up above.
