For as long as I can remember, I was scared of myself. I lived in fear and in my comfort zone: the bedroom. One day, I woke up to the profound love in my heart, which was always there, beating to the sound of poetry. I found a sense of relief and inhaled the sighs of freedom. A catharsis came over me every time I allowed myself to write and every time I listened to the sound of the words of my soul. When I let go of the fear that poisoned my heart, I was able to be with the thing I loved most. I was able to live in my poetry.
My mission as an artist is to inspire people to wake up to their calling, whatever it may be; to let go of the fear that poisoned their heart; to blow away the forces that prevented them from doing what they were brought to this time-space to do. Because when you do what it is your heart beats for, you truly manifest and live out the creator that you are.
Do you sit and watch the world go by,
While the gift you were born with
Lies locked deep inside of you?
Are you hiding who you really are?
Are you living in a pond
When you know the ocean
Is your world?
Are you a closet singer?
A bathroom dancer?
A night-time painter?
A part-time DJ?
A bedroom poet?
A secret success story
Forever waiting to happen?
Are you dying inside
Not showing the world
What you are really made of?
I know what it feels like when you don’t do what you were brought here to do; when you don’t do what you brought yourself here, into this time-space, to do. Fulfil your soul’s mission. That’s what I hope my poetry and all the forms it takes will inspire you to do
