    A lost son, a wanderer in the desert that is LIFE, a captive soul, but the one spark of hope for me in this poem is the fact that you know where you came from... It is important to know your roots and never to forget them, no matter how successful you become in life... Stunning effort, my friend!

  • POEM: Dream World by Dave Alan Walker (11/12/2011 4:03:00 PM)

    Good poem... short and to the point... I myself am a dreamer, it has its pro's and also its cons... Being a dreamer means to me that sometimes a person's dreams / fantasies and reality overlap... Sometimes we escape into our dream world only to find that our fears have followed us in... Making it a confusing sensation...

  • POEM: Behind Those Eyes by chantelle ribeiro (10/15/2011 2:37:00 AM)


    Thank you so much for that beautiful review of my poem... The eyes truly are the windows to the soul... I love that you 'get' it and that it touched you... I do not use complicated words... For me poetry is about speaking the truth, touching upon the matters of the heart which others find hard to describe... For me it is something that comes naturally... Thank you for voting on my poem, it means a lot...

    Kind Regards

    Greetings, fellow poets!

    My name is Chantelle Ribeiro. I reside in South Africa and am half Portuguese.

    My father was my hero. I inherited all his talents. He was a very accomplished musician and passed away in 1998. That is when my whole world changed and I woke up realizing it was time to go in search of my destiny...

    Since I can remember I have written down my thoughts, even as a child... I guess it kept me sane... I have written many poems over the years, but never thought at the time of sharing them with anyone... My life was not easy growing up, but writing seemed to balance it out for me. I also am an artist / painter and my other talents are playing the guitar, singing and dancing. I love how I can write a poem in 5 minutes at times and later when I read it think - wow, where did that come from? I do not use complicated words and I believe in writing about human emotions, things that are real and helping others through my experiences or the experiences of others around me... I hope your will find my poetry both inspiring and sort of feel like I am someone, a complete stranger that simply 'gets' you in times when you might need some good advice. I have a gift and I wish to share it with the world... I have this talent I believe that will hopefully make people who have come to the end of their rope believe that they are not alone... I have a gift to change your life if you'd let me... I sincerely hope you will enjoy my writing and keep in contact with me throughout my journey... For I might be considered 'old' by some of you, being 41 and all, but believe me when I say I am only now finding myself, realizing I do matter and that what I say in my poems is MY truth... Enjoy

    Kind Regards
    Chantelle Ribeiro
