I discovered my love for writing when I was about 22 (I’m 28). I was living in Canada at the time, working a shit job, and would always scribble in notebooks in my free time. I had written since I was a young teen, but it was around that point I began taking it seriously. My favorite poem I have written is “Leaving Frost Upon the Walls”, which is over 40 pages long. It’s my favorite because it meshed my traditional style with a slightly new approach. In my eyes I marked it as a turning point. When I finished it, for the first time in my life, I felt like I finally created something both absolutely original. As far as memorable performance, I did a speaking at an awards ceremony, in front of several hundred people. I was sweating bullets the entire time. I was feeding off the audience. It’s what kept me going. It was also the point when I realized I was finally reaching a point where I figured out the proper way of connecting to people.
