Poem / Poetry
I was born on August 18th, 1990. I live in the US at Maplewood, NJ. Writing wasn’t always my forte; I initially wanted to pursue drawing as a career. It wasn’t until 2005 did I step my feet within the writing world. At this time, my father, God rest his soul, passed away due to alcoholism, and to deal with the grief, I wrote my first poem towards him as a tribute. Furthermore, my writing expanded during high school, as my sophomore year English teacher noticed my potential in literature and encouraged me to pursue it. Since then, I have dedicated myself to writing poetry. I’m proud to say that I have also been published on multiple occasions, both inside and outside of my schooling career. I recently released a collaborative poetry book, "A Cryptic Oasis", with a close friend (and fellow poet), Dina Darling. My pieces usually romanticize darkness; however, I find the dark to be my one true oasis, my safe place when the weight of the world tries to invade my soul.
