Carli Pires is
a 15 year-old high school student from Brockton High. She is new to the
poetry scene and writes sentimental and powerful poems with a dash of
the student life she lives. Her journey in life has been the roughest of
roads in life with the torment of mental
issues, so she puts her stresses into her poems to calm the scenery.
