My poem Haunted By Lies is currently one of the entrants in Little Infinite’s poetry competition. I would love if you voted for it but obviously there is so many excellent poems in the competition so no pressure whatsoever! 🙂
If you do vote for Haunted By Lies though, it would be very much appreciated and thank you so much. 🙂
My new book Diverse Poetry is now available to purchase on Amazon and Payhip. This was a collection of fifty poems I put together about people from many different backgrounds and about numerous aspects of life and love. I wanted many different people to have a poem which reflected their experiences or at least elements of their experiences. The world is so wonderfully diverse and it is hard to fit everybody and every experience you want to fit into a book of fifty poems so this is only going to be the first book in this poetry series.
I really enjoyed putting it together. Poetry can be really relaxing to write and it was wonderful to be able to write about so many wonderful characters. I look forward to writing the second collection at some stage in the future but in the meantime, thank you to anyone who chooses to buy the book. I hope you all like it. 🙂
My poem Strength was read on the latest episode of the amazing podcast ReadByLyn. If you haven’t checked the podcast out by now, you should, it’s amazing. 🙂
My poem appears alongside the wonderful poem I Cannot Sing by Edward Nathaniel Harleston. The episode is brilliant and I was really chuffed that my poem was a part of it.
Strength is about my experiences of losing my confidence in myself due to gaslighting and prejudice and feeling so low that I wanted to kill myself because I thought I couldn’t be myself and I thought I couldn’t be myself, be happy and live. I was wrong because things do get better, they get really amazing on the other side even though it doesn’t always feel like that. It’s about the strength that saved me from somewhere within me and how I will never let that go.
I hope you all like the poem and thank you Lyn once again, I appreciate my poem being included very much. 🙂
