I can write, sing, paint and such, I love so may different subjects, you see. But something changed, drastically. It began the day that I stopped pretending; when one by one I removed the toxins, the excuses and the lies that I told myself. All that noise.
I had buried my dreams so deep inside of me that life eventually shook me so hard, to such an extent that I had to surrender my inner world to you. I committed to writing a poem each Monday and sharing it with you. This practice became my way of opening my heart and remembering the way to my dreams. You will find selected poems that I have written between 2014 – 2017, some of which are a work in progress, towards my poetry book. This is where my musical journey began. Discover what poetry is for you. For me, each poem is a plea for love in this world.
I believe that silence is golden. I believe that most answers lie in nature, meditation and yoga; within ourselves, participating in good causes, big and small. I believe in love.
