Sometimes our thoughts seem too incomplete,

As if we’re walking down a narrow street;

A street that leads us to no real destination,

Causing bounds of hesitation…


The only way for us to know,

Is to finally stop and put on a show.


Show your talent,

Share your words,

Let everyone know what your true destiny yearns.


There is absolutely no guarantee;

Nothing but knowing that your words can set you free.


Maybe you’ll make a living off all you have to share,

Maybe it will turn into something you only do because you care.


Care about yourself,

Care about others,

Care about knowing that at least you are trying.

Care about knowing that this right here,

Truly & honestly feels like you’re flying.

My name is Alexandria DeLorenzo and I am a 26 year old soul with a truly hippy heart. I have been in sales and marketing my entire working career and recently decided to quit my full time job in the corporate world and pursue my true dream of becoming a writer. I am working full time as a server at a local bar that's within walking distance to my new home here in Bristol, RI. I have my days to myself, where you can normally find me at Colt State Park writing. I often have people walk by and tell me what a nice office I have here, and I couldn't agree with them more! I am pursing yoga as well and will be taking my certification course to be a fully training instructor come May 2020. I have plans to move out West and truly embrace my hippy lifestyle by the summer of 2020. I have lived an incredible life filled with amazing stories that I can't wait to share with you!
