Where do i start? I was born in Birmingham and have never lived anywhere else. My writing was only triggered by a huge loss in my family; My Grandad died of cancer over the space of a few months after having 2 strokes. I wrote him a poem as a tribute and from then on i have been writing, for the first year it was only occassional times that i wrote but then i began to write more thoroughly over the last 1-2 years. Which brings me upto this date in my life where i'm begining to realise nothing in my life will ever be the same....

James Lee Watts Poems

All Across The Nation

All Across The Nation,
Is Hunger And Starvation.

All Across The Nation,... more »

Soldiers, Murderers Or Heroes?

“Salute the flag! …Serve your country! ” is all we hear,
But they don’t tell people about all the fear,
Wondering whether you’re going to live or die!
Getting up early hours still wanting to give it a try,... more »

Confused

How do I feel about the love you show?
Do I feel the same? I really don’t know,
And do I think about you all the time?
Would I still love you through trouble and grime?... more »

You have a way with expressing the emotions so many feel and wish to express themselves. I work with InnerCircle Publishing. A company created solely for metaphysical writers. Please check out www.innercirclepublishing.com with your parents, my email is on the contact page if you are interested in more information. Thank you for your time and wisdom. Stacy Lilly

Hi James...Just read your poem 'Soldiers, Murders or Heroes'...wow...you have definitely caught the full magnitude of what this is all about...and what has been going on for the lifetime of man. I would say you have much thought in the form of words to share...this is certainly one of them...your stuff is very good... I have a few new poems on this site... 'A Friend' 'Cabernet Sauvignon' 'I Am The Deer' 'Her Eyes Told Me' Keep up the writing, James...then...when you feel it's right...gather your stuff and put them in your book of poetry...don't forget...you are a storyteller...you need to tell people...

Hi James...I just got your E mail. After reading it I went right to your poetry page on poemhunter. So far I have read just a few of your poems...I will definitely read them all. James...although I am no expert, from what I have read of your poetry I think you have a great gift in writing poetry. You convey very special thoughts that I think most of us have all gone through. I believe your poem about your grandfather is very special and the thought of giving your poem as tribute to your grandfather is precious. I lost my dad last February. I wish I had published my book of poetry before he died...but he died so suddenly. I look forward to reading future poetry from you, James. I hope one day you will publish your own book of poetry. You have a special gift... Sincerely, Lare Austin
