About LestyPatrick:

I am a novice freestyle poet and writer. I write to capture a moment, a feeling, a place, a fear; all these things are a part of the real world. Unfortunately, they tend to slip under the radar. I hold on to every single moment by writing <3!!

LestyPatrick's Favorite Personal Quote:
