Hope

Admittedly, this isn't one of my best poems, but it's more upfront than most. If you're down on hard times, I hope that you'll appreciate this message of hope. You're not alone! 🙂

To be a poet

It's me again! I wrote this poem in response to a discussion I had with a friend a long time ago on how poems should be written. I come from a background which studied romantic (not that kind, sorry) period poetry which was heavy, but dealt with many themes on humanity. I believe that our poems should reflect the holistic nature of our existence - that is, that it should tell about the world in its' entirety. Therefore, no subject should be scorned upon or labeled "too dark". Authors only type - the words have their own life. Enjoy!

What is love?

Suprise! Here is a poem on relationships - specifically, moments in a date when a hopeful guy like yours truly thinks about what the future can hold for himself and his date. As I always believe, a poet needs to write about life in all its' forms - not just the positive moments. So if this poem feels sad for you...well 1) I don't think you're not reading the poem properly, and 2) don't shy away from things that make you uncomfortable.

Midnight

I wrote this one a few years back when I was feeling a little more down and doubtful about my place in the world. It is our responsibility to constantly revisit the dark corners of our minds and accept who we were, who we are. While these thoughts are not mine now, I had serious doubts when I wrote this. This poem is inspired by the classic poem "Do not go gentle into that good night" by Dylan Thomas, which was featured in the Christopher Nolan movie "Interstellar". I hope you enjoy this poem, but remember: don't let the darkness within yourself grab a hold of you.
