My name is Samer Edward Madbak. I was born in Beirut, Lebanon, on the 31st of July 1969. I hold the Australian nationality, and I am married to a wonderful Lebanese lass; Salwa Wardeh. We have three beautiful boys, Edward (b.1999) and Mark (b.2001) and John (b.2008) . We live in Beirut, and I work as a teacher at the American Community School of Beirut. I teach chemistry to grades 9-12. I hold an Honours degree in Physical and Inorganic Chemistry from the University of Adelaide, Australia.

My hobbies include reading and writing poetry, bird hunting, singing, composing, and listening to classical music. I am a modest Byzantine chanter in the Orthodox church of Saint Michael in Beirut.

I started writing poetry at the age of 16 in the picturesque village of Blaouza in North Lebanon. I posted all my poems on this wonderful website. Hope you enjoy it.

As daystar declines, and the Globe falls asleep,
When uncontrolled sadness reigns over my realms,
A feeling of sore in my heart overwhelms.... more »

Poem 012, Sonnet 3: What You See And Taste

Oh should I utter words of little sense
And jabber, wearing out my heart and lips
Should I engage in folly and pretense
And furnish people with invalid quips?... more »
