The Juvenilia

Didactic Narratives and other Poems

The Juvenilia: Three Retold Tales and other Poems, is a collection of poems that presents the works of a nascent poet as the title implies. This collection is meant to be a first of many. The collection is divided into two major parts. The first part features three long poems which are retold tales written in rhyming verses; a lengthy one, a moderately long one – both written in the poet’s preferred couplet pentameter and a relatively shorter one written in rhyme royal. The other part contains short poems of different forms and styles which cut across various themes.

Unconventional poet and blogger

I’m a published narrative poet, freelance writer, ghostwriter and blogger. My first book is an anthology of poems titled “The Juvenilia”. It was published in October, 2018. I love writing; it’s who I am. It’s what I’m created to do. Fun fact: I’m a graduate of microbiology and I’m also a digital strategist and entrepreneur.

And as well, retrieves; it’s it too that kills.
Alas, it’s it, neither man’s foe nor friend;
It only takes him from his start to his end.

I’m Sorry to Break your Heart but you can’t Wish Things into Reality.

Nothing stems out of ordinary wishing. Wishing all by itself is null. Until wishes graduate into desires, they don't materialize into anything tangible because they lack the capacity to do so. There's a marked difference between a wish and a desire. The proof of desire is pursuit. If you desire something, you pursue it until you achieve it. You won't achieve anything by pretending you have achieved it. No! It doesn't work that way. It never did and it never will.
