What Brought Your Poetic Side?

was never a literature student all thru my skool yrs; never seriously started writing poems until my IT yr -- btw 2nd & 3rd yr in the polyteknic -- the poetic side of me emerged as a result of a heartbreak & way too much time spent in a high-rise overlooking the Atlantic on Marina.

when & how did u discover ur flair for writing poems & when d u write ur 1st full poem (if u can still remember)?

Hey bro, promised to check out your works , sorry i havent, but let me answer this quick question of yours,

I have been writing since i was a kid as a matter of fact i think it was something i was born with,

i play with words so easily,

believe me there are some words i hear or see for the first time and i just comprehend their meanings, by sheer guessing,

dont know why that happens, doesnt always happen though, this is a 2 out of 5, occurrence.

When i was in sec sch.(boarding house) i had this book in which i scribbled and one day after some melancholic matters,

i just threw the whole book into a bucket o' water,

Some peeps tell me i shoulda studied literature or shumtin, but it doesnt even prick me as a thot.

Anyways before i go on sermonizing, i think you'd find that we all have some elements of literature in us, how and when we express those elements is another matter.

guess it was tha rude awakening from reading my first pacesetters (The Intruder, Death Is A Woman etc) as a Primary 3 pupil after having "ate" my way through all the Marvel, DC, Beanos Comics around and having lottsa of free time on my hands.

@ruudie, nice post

what do you like to write about & where do you like to write ?

i mostly get my inspiration from lines i see on song titles, lyrics, books etc. and i can write just about anywhere - i remember travelling from Ago-iwoye to Lagos in a bus and just scribbling down stuff in my "rhyme book" all thru the trip !

I've always written poems basically about my puppylove years when I was still much younger. However, when I was in 200L and my sis just joined me in UNIBEN, studying theatre arts, I just borrowed this book on poetry from her and it changed my life forever.
