For the next few weeks, I will be featuring the work of fellow members of the Rave Writers-International Society of Authors (RWISA). Please check back each day to see an eclectic sample of fine writing by these talented authors. Today I am pleased to present: Marlena Smith and her original poetry.”Marlena Smith
Will it ever be enough?
Will I ever be complete?
These questions haunt me;
They scream out defeat.
A mind vacant of answers;
A soul lost in time;
A heart full of sadness;
And eyes that just won’t shine.
A whisper full of sorrow;
A smile full of regret;
A life less than ordinary;
One I wish to forget.

Life is too precious to not make the most of every day.
Strive to make more.
Make every moment count.
Tell others you love them.
Pray every day.
Have a thankful heart.

Marlena Smith is a true Southern Belle at heart. Her home has always been in Alabama and she couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Growing up as a preacher’s daughter, faith and family played a large part in her life.
Her earliest memory of writing was that of 2nd grade when she was selected to attend the Young Author’s Conference in her home state. Little did she know then that her future was being mapped out.
Marlena now wears many hats, including: writer, author, blogger, freelancer, reader, reviewer, researcher, paranormal enthusiast, traveler, and Secretary of Rave Reviews Book Club. Writing, though, has and always will be her main passion in life.
Marlena has several works in progress, including an upcoming short romance, titled THE POWER OF LOVE. This debut book is expected to be out in 2017. In addition
