I consider myself a thinker and a lover of truth, words, and beauty. I'm a Leo, born and raised on Chicago's South Side. In an attempt at self-expression I discovered poetry. I believe this art is for those who see in it an almost religious function of learning and using the underlying principles of the art to make a personal contribution to it. Whether that be in deciphering it, appreciating its beauty, or creating it. To this cause I pay my tithes.
