Heya!! My name's Lwazi, but my friends call me Beast, or Swali (Swali Barkat al Shaair) and I love writting! :)
"Poetry's not what I do, it's who I am..."
I've been out for a LONG ass time, but I'm back, and back with a VENGENCE
For me, writing has always been my way of relating my thoughts and feelings to those around me, but also as a chance to see myself from the outside looking in for a moment and try to correct my faults - 'write my wrongs'.
My writing is like my shrink notes, just letting it all out in burts, unabashadly busting out in emotional shrapnel, spraying indiscriminatley to those who care to listen.
I'm on a journey to NIRVANA, learning what I can as I travel. I do deviate, but getting back on my feet is what builds me.
I'm a Medical Rep now. Not a bad line of work. By definition I sell drugs (LOL). Graduated with my BSc degree in Biomedicine, and still want to get into Anthropology and get my PhD in Philosophy in the coming years. But my heart is and will always be in the arts and in writing.
I've always got ideas swimming around in my head, some of then can be written (e.g. poetry, lyrical prose, storys), but others are purely visual, which leads me to explore my other nature as an artist, drawing, sculpting, painting. I had to teach myself how to use a few graphic design programs just to satisfy my need to express my thoughts in every possible medium.
Musik to me is something of an addiction!!!! And that's no joke...=0)
I just recently started playin the guitar, which has been like a dream of mine for the longest time.
I don't fit into any boxes, nor do I try to. I don't try to be anything I'm not. I'd rather be a real ME than a fake Someone Else.
I perform my poetry every chance I get, but my dream is not to be a performer. I'm a writer at the end of the day. My dream is to publish a book (or several, preferably), an anthology of my poetry, literature, and written pieces, as well as my photography and other art.
PLEASE feel free to lay down a comment, gimme feedback or share whatever thoughts are sparked as you float though my soul decorated with satin solitude, it'd be much appreciated. And if there are any storys, poems, or books that you would like me to read, comment, and critique, please let me know.
