Presents the Poetry of
Bonnie Ray Mahana
On occasion, JJ Namcap chooses a poet who is a regular contributor to our Creativity Forum and offers them a page for three of their most precious writings. They are not charged for posting their work on this select page, nor are they paid in any currency, although it would be great if they could be, for they certainly should be.
Profile of Poet Bonnie Ray Mahana
Bonnie Ray Mahana is in her twenties and has been writing poems since she was 12 years old. She has always been a lover of words and where they can take you. She has received a lot of inspiration from her Dad during his life and also even now. He passed away 4-21-02.
Bonnie has had many careers already, but has finally decided to go to school. She started studying Criminal Justice when she was 16. At such a young age, she was disheartened by the world and she chose another path; she started a support group for rape victims during her last two years of high school. The Rape Victims Support Group. It became quite a great accomplishment for her.
Bonnie then graduated high school a year ahead of schedule and then got married and then divorced. She is currently in a relationship with a man who she has been with for over four years as of this writing and whom she has been friends with for a lot longer than that. Bonnie plans to eventually get married, but there is no rush. Some day perhaps a family will be in her future.
Bonnie graduated from Nursing school in February of 2002 and went on to work in a rehabilitation/long term care facility. She currently is the restorative nurse as well as the skin and wound nurse. Ms. Mahana wanted to be a nurse since she was 4 and she now feels that she has achieved one of her dreams. She can not imagine doing anything else professionally.
She also hopes to be a great writer someday. She loves poetry and writes when she can. She is nearing publication of her first book entitled, "Mystified". She hopes to start writing children's books and more poetry in the future.
Bonnie lives in Colorado and has lived there for her whole life. She used to snowboard until she broke her back in 1997, which ironically has given her more time to write poems.
