India Iman Holder has been creating poetry and short stories since she was six years old. Even though she could not read or write properly (until reaching the third grade), India still managed to express her creativity by saying her thoughts aloud. After experiening trauma from a home invasion and dealing with obesity and bullying, she has decided to write "The Dark Mind of Poetry" to inspire others to turn their pain into art. To express themselves in a nonviolent way. While keeping in mind that their situation could be much worse than it is currently. Internal toture can become inner peace just from drawing, writing, even planting. Everyone can be an artist, because everyone has experienced some type of pain. India lives in Florida with her mother and her 5 siblings, and is on the path of becoming a well known poet and writer.
