My interest in poetry began in elementary school. Like many children, it started with love poems. First reciting the dorky "Roses are red" poems, then developed my own distinct lines. I was a quiet and shy kid but when I put pen to paper, I was bold and confident. I had a way of making ideas flow and assembling words into rhymes.

As I aged, I noticed that other people also liked my poetry. I began writing poems, upon request, for friends in high school and in college. I realized that I had a natural knack for it. Comedian Buddy Hackett summed it up beautifully when describing his own poetry, during an appearance on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show. He said, "I can't sing, but I write pretty!" That's exactly how I feel about my poetry.

These are my thoughts, my feelings, and my observations throughout the years. I hope you find something impactful in them. Poetry is an emotional ride. Like all forms of art, it is an expression of the artist. It is meant to evoke a reaction. Each person will take something different from each piece of work. There is no right or wrong view, there is only YOUR view. Uniquely and exclusively your own.
