Aleja Bennett was born in East Elmhurst Queens New York by her biological mother. In 1976 she was raised in East New York Brooklyn by her church attending adopted parents who physically-verbally and mentally abused her from the age of three until she was nineteen years of age.

Alcohol became an escape for her while she associated with people-men that added to her abuse. At the age of twenty five while walking into her first A.A. meeting, she wrote her first poem titled Being Alive. From there she wrote eight titles, Only the Strong Can Survive, Aleja's Beautiful Poetic Strategy in Recovery, Poems from the Heart Mind Body and Soul, Passions Desires of Aleja the Poet, Thoughts Deeply Rooted Within Me, Seasons With And Without Love, All I Can Do Is Stand which and finally All I can Do Is Stand Part Two. Available on paper back, kindle on Amazon

She writes not just to share her story but to empower-strengthen-encourage people all over the world. Her mission has been to lift up the depressed-broken-wounded-injured-sad-addicts-abuse victims-teens-adopted children all over the world.

Her writing helps so many people as it allows her healing to process faster. Her goal is to stop the form of abuse or at least give people a desire to no longer deal with it.

She writes for all ages excluding some of the romance poems that might not be suitable for certain ages. The majority of her works are for all ages to read.

Aleja Bennett has started an organization all over the world called Teen Speak Out where teens always have a safe place to speak their mind and receive any services they may need for their immediate situation. Teens can join here or on her blog
This place is for Teens between the ages of twelve through twenty only. This is to stop the cycle of abuse-drugs-runaways-teen pregnancy and loneliness

Now at the age of thirty seven she still continues to write words that uplift and help so many around her and over the internet. She has become a motivational speaker-poet-author and an all around good friend if you need one.

She doesn't just try to sale books, it's the message that is in her books that she wants to be delivered so that all are touched and inspired.

Thank you for the friend request. I like your style. Very inspirational. Personally, I like poems about vignettes of life rather than bigger meanings. But I hope that someone gets a bigger meaning from it. We should chat sometime. Zeta

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
