Introduction PDF Print E-mail
One's poetry is something that is often very personal. It holds more meaning for the writer than it ever could for anyone else. One never knows how it could be interpreted by another. That being said, I recently lost a great deal of my poetry written over a number of years, something that you feel you can't replace, rewrite. I am not one to sit and memorise anyone's poetry, let alone my own. Since then, I have felt that it is of no use kept secret only for me to enjoy my own words but rather share it with anyone who cares, or cares not to read it.

Much of this poetry is new, some I have managed to find written on scraps of paper or in a notebook sometime. Between 2000 and 2003, I barely wrote more than 3 times. I have begun writing again now, partly to overcome my loss of years of my work and partly because of the lack of writing in these past  3 years.

I am not one for grammatical correctness because what is trying to be expressed cannot always be pressed into the confines of grammatical correctness. Words and language in their own right, although a fantastic medium for expression and communication , also cannot do proper justice to the experience of feeling.
