Biography of Jaryd Stapleton

Jaryd Stapleton poet

Jaryd was an excellent student and a talented writer.
He was a gentleman, well-spoken and soaked up information like a sponge. I am an old lady of 62, and was in awe of his talent and achievements.
He was just starting second year at Durban University, when he contracted Meningitis and although he was taken to hospital immediately, his condition was misdiagnosed and he died tragically and unnecessarily.

Jaryd Stapleton's Works:

Only the ebook. I would like to have these poems published in book form with someone like Noble House, but I am not sure whether that would be plagiarism. Do you print books too? I would like to preserve his genius for all time, we will never read anymore of his heart-rending words. So young, and so much soul.

Head Over Heels

I want to be myself around you
But all I can do is wear the mask of another
Someone you want me to be

If I stop speaking untruths
You might turn away, you might leave me
And I’ll just disappoint and disgust you

But I want to be all I can be for you
