Finding my 'god'


God. Atheist. Agnostic. Higher Power. Believer. Creator. Spiritual. These are all words. As a writer I know the power that words can weave, but I also know that power comes from our interpretation. Without meaning, words are a strew of vowels and consonants.

Advice to would-be artists


Being in the creative arts is one of the most wonderfully rewarding things you can do. We make people happy. People read our books, listen to our music, attend plays and watch poets because it brings them joy. Art is the window that reflects the world.

Why black girls like white boys


This is a satirical post and I am exaggerating to get a point across. Please do not take literally.

The Joys of Being a Teenager (poem)


So I dug this up out of my vault of words. It's more of a performance poem but I was probably too embarrassed to perform it in public. Wrote it aged seventeen.

Curfews, kissing, cool kids hissing
Down 'on road', don't know what I'm missing
Everybody tellin ya what to do
'No hats inside!'
'Be home by nine!'

On Belief


Everyone believes in something. Be it a higher being, a superstition, a political party or yourself. We all have faith in something that keeps us going each day. If we didn't wouldn't we just kill ourselves? The reason I get out of bed every morning is because I believe in the people I love, and believe in realizing my full potential.
