For many days, I have wondered what do I say?
Is there anything useful, in knowing of me this way?
Just a visiting card, this space does seem to be,
How can you know, just by this, all about me?
I have a million thoughts, racing through my mind,
So many emotions, difficult to capture I do find,
A writer’s journey, in the quest of dreams, desire,
Straight from the heart, scars that burn like a fire.
Read my rhymes, dear friend, to know my heart,
I place my mind in poetry, a really subtle art.
Cast your minds on my work,
Just forget about li’l ol’ me,
I’m just an amateur writer,
Nothing much more to see.
With my trusted quill & ink,
I fill the voids my mind shows,
Balancing my thoughts, like
Thorns that complete a rose.
The poet amateur, that’s me,
Wandering on paths unknown,
In infinite lanes of my mind,
Where I always walk alone.
I’m Leo, 25 years old, from Bangalore in India. I’m also known as the Amateur Poet, and write a lot of poetry.. forms, free verse, and even dab my hand in inks of fiction and long series stories at times! I reside wherever inspiration holds its court, where the thoughts flow like the river goes over each stone. I’m no professional in writing, still a student at heart, learning and becoming better as time passes. I may have a lot of writes, but yes, I’m still the amateur poet, wanting to better myself.. keeps me going when I want to say I give up.! I rhyme without reason, coz my love for writing is unconditional. To me, writing is an art that I’m trying to perfect. I’ve been blogging since November 2006 and it wasn’t my first choice actually, blogging.. I was brought to this beautiful world by a friend, and I’ve not looked back since.
