I started hearing songs which first introduced me to poetry as well when I was five.. Then my father bought us this small book of poetry when I was then a fourth-grader.
I love singing, too. But it wasn't given any focused attention because my mom wants us to have a bright future by focusing on our studies.. well, in modesty aside, I always achieved top rank honors in school and competitions, as well. My intense desire to compose poems burned brighter when I happened to get wonderstruck by a Superstar..
I think I was also influenced by my mama who, with her soft, warm touches, speak words in an amazing way. My papa, he's just the greatest living hero that ever was.
Anyone could have his works published, and eventually earn some money. Yes, right? But the more important thing is when you're inspiring other people. I hope I can inspire others thru my works.; ')
