The Poetry Hub
Immerse yourself in the community of writing and creativity. The Hub is a place to share the great works of fellow creatives whom I greatly admire. Praising others is what makes my heart smile and so, l believe the Poetry Hub should become a platform that continues to grow by sharing the works of different writers, past and present.
The first poem is from my best, Tupac Amaru Shakur- The Rose that Grew from Concrete.

Proving nature’s laws wrong it learned to walk
without having feet
Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams
it learned to breathe fresh air
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else even cared!

John Donne- Death, be not proud
On the 22nd April 2018, I lost a dear friend. I am still in shock that you left us so soon. I also celebrate knowing that you gave your life to Christ and that you are enjoying with our Father in heaven. To think we met in 2016 when we worked as O-buddies. It was […]
