About Ryan Jackson
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoI live in Hertfordshire England, I'm 32 years of age. Originally I was born and was raised in London until the age of 21 when I moved to Hertfordshire's countryside.

I am a strict vegetarian, for reasons that our species has made me. I like reading/ writing poetry/ sports (football/baseball/hockey)
spending time with the people I love and my animals.

I have 3 dogs (2 male Labradors, 1 female rottweiler)
And now a gorgeous cat, her name is Sadie,
They are my heart!
I adore and love all creatures and I will do anything to help and save animals in need/neglected/cruelty towards. I'm also a proud member of PETA/WSPA/ANIMAL PROTECTOR/ANIMAL AID/NOAH.

This quote nails it for me about my beliefs- "As long as there are slaughterhouses there will be battlefields." -- Leo Tolstoy.

I have always loved writing poetry growing up. When ever I was to write out birthday cards/Christmas cards my family would always comment on how much thought and depth I would put in it to express my words.
With there support the older I got the more I started writing and noticing how much I enjoyed poetry. 
My girlfriend bought me my first poetry writing pad. 
From that moment I writ so much which filled the pad within the month, I now have 4 more new poetry writing pads to challenge my mind.

I like to write creative scenarios that I haven't had experienced from, then build from there.
Usually, I begin writing with nothing in mind, I would then write a line with any thought that comes to me, from there my mind excelurates fast with ideas and madness thinking that I didn't think was in me.
Little voice screaming to be recongnized on paper by the markings of broken wooden leds.
There has been a lot of poems that I have written that are from my own experience, or something that's touched my heart and I felt the need to share it with this world. These poems are the most dearest to me.
I like to try and put out expressive points in my poetry that will open up the reader's eyes, or touch their very soul.
I will continue to write, I feel it helps the mind for mentality and also soothes the soul.

Peace with you.......

Crazy world!

When ever I turn on the news, I'll have to brace myself for what I'm about to view. There is so much horror going on in this world of ours. It makes me wonder how terrible it is to live on this beautiful planet that we are destroying so quickly by hate and greed!
Makes me feel uncomfortable to be in my own skin....

    I agree, however if you spend some time, if you have time, with an elderly person or volunteering at a hospice or nursing home, you soon realize there are some very good things about this world and more importantly, great people such as yourself in it. It makes things look much better. I see so much love. I have an English bulldog, she is my pride and joy, I love her too. Lee

    Agreed, I don't pollute, I don't eat meat for reasons of cruelty which is better for the environment. We can do what we can as individuals, human mind needs to change! I really dislike the ppl that say but dont do!!!!!!!!!!

    It's a scary thought isn't it, I live in hope things will change too..I think somewhere along the way the feeling of entitlement has to stop and we need to get back to basic's, also I don't think the 'I'm just one person' attitude helps..If we all did our part things would begin to change. :) Thanks Ryan, I dont quite know why I can't close it. xxx

    That's something that scares my very soul to think about :( But I live in hope and faith that we will see our need to change the way we all treat ourselves and our world. I hope you get your answers you need for your contest Tracie. xxx
