Tony Haynes Bio

Tony Haynes has been called “The World’s Greatest Poet.” He is considered the Foremost Practitioner of Acrostic Poetry. In less than a minute, he can literally pull a poem out of thin air. Give him the title of what you’d like to call your poem and he will create it for you on the spot. The catch is, he will write your name in the air and show you how the beginning of each line in the poem he’s creating spells the letters of your name downward. It’s a combination of spontaneous penmanship & showmanship. The poem is being written down as he speaks it into existence. This way, the person he’s creating it for has an instant one-of-a-kind personalized gift that they can cherish for a lifetime.

Before Tony realized he had this talent, he was a songwriter, music publisher, record producer & author. “Send A Little Love, ” his first song, was recorded by the Spinners in 1981. Since then, his songs have been recorded on over 200 albums, selling in excess of 60 million copies worldwide. These songs have earned him 60 gold and multi-platinum awards, as well as several ASCAP Awards.

As a poet, he sees what he does as his mission in life, which is; “To create poetry works that touch a person’s heart, soul & day-to-day life. Tony loves inspiring people to imagine, hope, dream and believe.

Fear's Funeral

I went to a funeral today

Fear died and we buried it six feet deep
Everyone cheered nobody cried
And with fear
Resting in peace – now I can sleep

No, there wasn’t a eulogy
Our thoughts about fear were not uttered
