Biography of Freewill Amon
I's born and raised in Africa, Nigeria precisely, the third in a family of five.5.9 inch tall and a diploma holder (OND) from a polytechnic school in my country.
I's verbally abused by my folks, especially my mum. My growing up was perfect as a kid but miserable and lonely since my teenage years due to a health problem I got at the age of 14 called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I'm born again, though not finding Life In Christ smooth, as some people might make you think-but it's the biggest thing in my life.
My poems are the data-base of my inner-most feelings and expression of my ideas and opinions. Just like music, they're my door to happiness and window out of pain-no matter how heavy I might feel about a problem, I feel so free when I lay it down on a paper. Writting poems is more like a fortress in a barren land; it is taking a refuge.
Have fun as you read my poems. It's ok to react in any way they make you do. I welcome your comments.
Freewill Amon's Works:
I Like The Word 'Love.'
I like the word 'love' not because it is simple to spell
But because it cuts across the poor and those who live well
It makes you walk pass a street without fear of danger
It makes you feel welcomed even when you're a stranger
It makes the world a safe and better place to live
It tells you that you might hate apples, but you just have to let them be.
I like the word 'love' not just because it makes me hug my pillow
