Our Everlasting Thoughts

Poems from the Riverland

Cherlyn Anne McKenzie was born to Keith and Myra Wuttke on 3rd June 1970. She is now residing at Mannum SA, as you can see from the cover of my book with the Murray Princess. Being the youngest of two. I was a workaholic and I didn’t know I was a poet till 1997, I was 27 years old. I’d finally found the perfect guy and the poems started coming out of the woodwork. I had a husband and 3 lovely children. I was absolutely blessed because of my pregnancy problems with them, I’m lucky to have them.

I was bullied many a time during school, and as a result of that, I was starved of education. I didn’t start learning until 1986 at College, then I started learning with mature-age students.

I finally refrained from guys coz they treated me so badly, you will see this in the poems I’ve written.

I’ve finally found after all this time someone to support me with my poems.
