Hi I'm a 22 year old guy who has developed an interest for writing poetry and lyrics. I hope by joining this site I can connect with others and become better at what i like to do!
As far as the concept of my writing, I can come across rather dark...Well obviously I like tinted windows. Back up off!! (Lol sorry) No, really its because I have a time with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and it will throw me into moods. So writing became the easiest way for me to express my feelings and also understand them. For that reason you may notice a struggle between light and dark elements as I navigate the situation and reach a resolution or understanding. I guess you could say for a pessimist I'm pretty optimistic since the majority of my writings are about overcoming obstacles. That said I'm not "emo" or anything. This is just how I express
Far as my influences go, I actually don't have any poets on the list. A major influence has been a girl named Kerli (sounds like Bjork). She's very much outside of my musical sphere but she's very inspirational and was able to touch me and now I'm a moonchild (what she calls her fans). She incorporates a lot of the dark and light and supports Love, Integrity, and Unity..another inspiration has been Lupe Fiasco (always delivers a REAL message), Avril Lavigne (her emotions are ALWAYS pure), Sugar Ray (I liked their sense of humor, and how almost every song is upbeat), and Jay Z (I admire his confidence and sensibility).
