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.......

Extending the entries for last time to 60. That will be the final cut, and I'll be in progress of judging the winners in two weeks if entries do not reach to 60. Wonderful poems so far, it's a pleasure to read such beauty guys. Thanks for being patient with me :):):)

    Hello Andrea, thank you for the support. I agree at this point it is extremely difficult to pick out the winners. But I have some time now to go through them all thoroughly and make the final decision. Thanks again for your kind words Andrea. :)
