Poet Introduction

an aspiring street poet, I am working hard at it and I am studying every style, experimenting as much as I can, poetry like music is an art form of communication that takes a great deal of skill to be effective.. I aspire to reach that plateau.

Favorite Poets/Writers

Socrates, Aristotle, Plato, Stephen King, John Carpenter, Edgar Allan Poe

About Me

Read Full
I've lived and extremely eventful and very interesting life, I grew up rough and have been a witness to just about anything you can imagine, sometimes you have no choice but to participate, to be totally honest with you I am lucky that I'm not in prison or dead, I am graciously thankful that neither one of those apply..
I carry two trade certificates and one journeyman's card as a Tool and Die Maker, my favorite position was as a benefits rep for General Motors UAW members.
My basic education was in the street, I had a difficult childhood, I went to five different grade schools and five different high schools.. I was incorrigible.
Even though I have a hard and dark side to myself I have always enjoyed the softer things in life especially the Performing Arts, although I tested very high as far as IQ's are concerned as a young fellow.. I use that intelligence to do things that were nonconducive to being a productive citizen...
In 1996, I was almost killed and in 1999 my daughter was born, those two events collectively change the way that I lived my live.  
As now I have grown, and, I have learned to grab every audiobook that I can on psychology, philosophy and sociology.
