Biography of Michael Fischer

Michael Fischer poet

My name is Michael John Fischer II. I was born in Buffalo, NY on March 30,1987. I graduated from Maryvale High School in 2005 and I have an associate degree in General Studies from Erie Community College (ECC) . I'm going back to ECC to get an associate degree in Dietetics as I hope to become a Dietitian. I work at Sears as a sales associate in the Lawn & Garden Department. I also play roller and floor hockey on Tuesday and Thursday nights in an adult league at Mineral Springs in West Seneca.

I discovered a love for writing in high school and through music. My favorite writers include Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy, Jim Morrison of the Doors, and Sandy Pearlman and Eric Bloom of Blue Oyster Cult. Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day) , Kurt Cobain, William Shakespeare, William Blake, and Edgar Allen Poe are among my other favorites. I became serious about writing in December 2006 when I was playing with my band This is the Year... that has since disbanded. I also play electric guitar and some piano. My goal as a writer is to keep getting better and better. I hope to someday become renowned for my writing and my music.

Life's Poker Face

The sun used to beam
through his window of life;
Until someone dared,
to pull down the blinds.
He wants to stand up
and defend what is right.
But the shackles of doubtfulness
impedes his process.
