Cleo Patra is an indie writer whose genre is poetry and prose. Physically limited and has Dysarthria. From an early age, she endured sexual abuse, arrogance and ignorant discrimination against her. To cushion herself against the judgments of other people, she protected herself by creating an invisible shield around herself. She could not relate to anyone and felt very lonely and isolated. When she was sixteen, she accidentally discovered she could write poems. She started writing poetry as a way to express herself without struggling to get the words out. Her thoughts could now be heard as her perfect voice and she could speak without embarrassment. She felt, and still feels, “free” when writing poetry and she has found her voice.
