The Quintessential Space-cadet

PS – written for Isabel Vaz and other Space-cadets out there – Love Ya’ll! Your mind is the galaxy’s edge, Forever expanding through – Time and Space. Hardening like diamonds everything It comes across – Forming crystallised, multifaceted Webs of information Very much like Nebulae Yet free-flowing through dimensions unvisited – Black-holes and beyond, Light-years away, […]

Day 2 – Who was the last person you texted? Write a five line poem to that person. “….Where is the you I knew – the one that stood tall and true to his dream?” “Well we’re all born anew – life happens so you just got to flow with the stream.” “Utter tosh – don’t give […]

Hello, North.

A 60 day account of my journey to the capital of India – Delhi. Prologue A-Levels was such a drag. I started out in 2013 when I was 17 and now I was 20 – soon 21. Failure was something of a common theme in my life – something I knew very well and sometimes better […]
