    Everybody has their own thing that they do, that keeps them going being drawing,singing or sports etc. Chris Lewis is no different, his choice;writing. Lewis is in the 10th grade here at Pocomoke High School.

    Lewis started writing after Dr.Amy Bergonia asked him to writer her a poem in class and read it to her,since then he hasn't stop. Not many people know that Lewis likes to write.

    Lewis writes about personal experiences that he has gone through in life or about people that he knows personal. With that his poems sometimes come with a “trigger warning” as they are very vivid. “Writing is a way to free my mind, eliminated my anger” Lewis states.

    Dr.Bergonia also shared “Chris just realized his writing talent,his poems are filled with emotion”.”I have witnessed moments of pain and empathy in his writing, I hope he never stops”.

  For now he just writes as a hobby and doesn’t really see himself going anywhere with it. Dr.Bergonia wants him to know “when you fill up first journal, come back and i will give you another one”.

    Lewis tells future writes “keep writing; if you give up, you give up on your sight of imagination”.
