Biography of David J Lindsay
I am a big fan of many types of poetry and monologues. Started learning one a week as a 2011 New Years Resolution and currently know 165 or so. Thought I'd try my hand at writing some too - just managed 11 so far, but would be great to see some feedback or hear from you
I would also be interested to know if anyone has written on the same themes or using the same title - would be great to read them and see what other minds can come up with!
I can be found online at www.monologuedave.co.uk

Most of us find life difficult to avoid, in a way that I find quite curious Choosing the right path to follow at speed, makes some us quite furious The answers aren't easy, but O-U-S might just be a key
Two Suns We're orbiting our star, the sun, at quite a decent speed We've been doing that for billions of years, scientists are agreed
We're orbiting our star, the sun, at quite a decent speed
We've been doing that for billions of years, scientists are agreed
