Some of my earliest poems up until more recently. I don’t consider myself a poet. I am mainly a fiction writer and a journalist. I find poetry a good way to capture the main theme for a much bigger project. Most of my earliest poems got lost over the years, but back then I did keep a journal, so a few did survive. In fact, I have four journals, completely filled with thoughts and emotions that compelled me to write as I got a little older.
I wrote my first real short story at age 15, based upon a poem I wrote when I was twelve. And although I don’t consider my consider myself a poet, I do enjoy reading good poetry.
