When dispirited for one reason or the other, poetry can be an ideal solace…a perfect source of comfort that can ignite your heart, light a smile on your sad face, uplift your soul, and bring tears of joys in your eyes. Through poetry, we make known our innermost desires, fears, hopes, fantasies and at times, our skewed and wicked intentions. We let bare a cobweb of frustrations and surrender our all to the ever seemingly invincible might of fate. It is for the aforementioned reasons that I have compiled this collection of my both previously published (ONLINE Via multiple sites), and unpublished poems. They cover a wide range of themes such as death, love, betrayal, heartache, religion, education, nostalgia, politics, marriage, infidelity, etc.
