It is with great pleasure and humility that I welcome you to view some of my recent poetry. I believe there is a little something for everyone who appreciates sincere words from an honest perspective.
When a person first starts writing poetry, they inevitably write about their own feelings and experiences, both good and bad, as this is often the sole source of inspiration.
As I have matured as a poet, I have been blessed to find inspiration, not only in my own experiences, but in those around me. So, my readers will soon discover as they view much of my romance and 'love lost' mode of poetry, and the many other forms that my writing takes.
I believe that those who allow themselves to be open to poetic inspiration have a profound responsibility to be the mouthpiece of ageless wisdom, a witness and participant in living and sharing life with others. Ultimately, my goal is to remove the shell of the man in order to reveal the poetry within. Please enjoy my poetry, as I greatly enjoy the works of others shared on Poetry Soup.
'It is with a feeling of reckless abandon that I throw down now the chains of social expectation, cast off the shadow of the night and discard the many faces of an otherwise duplicitous nature to simply walk naked in the light of the sun; made vulnerable for all to see, but at least, at last I can breathe.' (C.T. Britt, 2005)
