Profile Information

I am 26 years old, and i began writing poetry at age 12 at primary school. i entered a poem in a contest themed "Arbour day" , and took first place in a group of about 45 entries.

most of my poetry is inspired by just a thought or a few words, that come to me randomly, and then ideas just come at me and before much i would have written a piece of poetry.

its not easy being a poet but i love the fact that with poetry , you get to create new words, and express oneself in different ways and words.

there are many ways to look at a poem but the important thing is to see and feel what the poet is trying to expose. in that understanding we can make the poem and characters come alive.

most of my poems are dedicated to my girlfriend, and i thank her for her loyalty and support

Yay, I am so excited, We're getting married in October.It's going to be epic!!!
