Biography of Steve Gregory

I have been writing poems and stories most of my adult life. Many are reflections on my Faith in Jesus Christ and my thoughts on the Faith. I have also writen one or two that could be seen as political, looking at genocide and environmental issues. However, I enjoy writing and am writing a couple of stories at the moment (to be revealed later) . I suffered a heart attack in December 2009 and was in a coma for seven days and on life support for three more weeks. I eventually had a defibrillator fitted, which keeps my heart running. In September 2012 I had open heart surgery to replace the aortic valve and repair the damage done to the aorta. In May 2013 I had a cranial aneurysm coiled and am now back on the road to full recovery. I am currently unemployed, but that just gives me more time to write. I am a member of Woodberry Down Church in Tottenham, North London and help with leading the Men's ministry. This also gives me a chance to write for church publications and to be read at church events. Writing has yet to pay me a wage, but I live in hope. And Hope reigns eternal...
Update as of 31/08/2014 - I am in planning stages of having my first collection published. 'Dawns First Light' a collection of 30 poems and 2 prose pieces, will be published sometime i September/October. When it is I will post the link to the book seller on here and on my Facebook page.

Planet Texture

Like textured paper covered in sand
Like sheepskin warm to the touch
Tactile, fragile, easy to break
A sculpture in time, in line, to protect, respect.
Take a look at what you see, what you wear,
What you can be. Soft, hard, in-between
It’s texture at its best, worst, the only
Texture made for man, woman, child.
It’s sometimes wet. Sometimes dry. Hot
