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 ended up in rehab. Part of my journey of healing required that I share my inner world with 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. This is where my musical journey began. You will find selected poems that I have written between 2014 – 2017, a lot of which are a work in progress towards my poetry book. 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.
