As a poet, I hail from the picturesque seaside town of Umkomaas, situated in the Kwa Zulu Natal province of South Africa. With a deep passion for poetry, I find myself compelled to express my thoughts and emotions in diverse literary forms, from Prose to Haiku, depending on the creative inspiration of the moment. While my poetic endeavors are an integral part of my being, I also face unique challenges. In 2012, I was diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder, which has led me to rely on disability benefits for financial support. Nevertheless, I remain steadfast in my pursuit of poetic excellence, pouring my heart and soul into every verse.
