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.......

    Hi Ryan, I had a cat once that always seemed to be looking out for me. You have a great contest theme. When you say "duo date," do you mean you wanted us to write with another person? I wrote my entry alone. Perhaps I need to get some content from another writer? Love, Carolyn
