Jen Compton

I am an inspirational poet.  I take everyday situations that people can relate to and, with rhyming verse, turn them from something mundane to something magic.  The inspirations I write speak to the heart.  They create a positive, conscious shift in people and allow them to better connect with themselves and others.

Jen Compton’s rhymes can work wonders – soothing and reassuring, inspiring and challenging – they bring a smile and a pause. Let these bright glimmers of wisdom and mercy nourish your heart!

Will Tuttle, Ph.D., visionary author of the best-selling book, The World Peace Diet

Jen Compton’s poetic advice is simple but profound, just as all universal truths are.

This book of inspirations conjures pictures and feelings of joy for the past and excitement for the possibilities of the future. Each inspiration soothes the soul, healing the child and adult within.

Jen is a veritable Dr. Seuss.

I like the poem Your Role, especially the part about being bold.  If you don’t dare to be bold, you won’t get anywhere.  You can get fired for being bold.

Nicolas Anderson from Sweden

I’m a practical guy so I like the poem called Pay it Forward.  I intend to do that one day soon.
