Who will make the difference if everybody fears to do the right thing? – It’s Not Okay
But your presence in silence is music enough to get my heart dancing. – My Unwritten Poem
Sometimes smiles are the only stars shining in the darkness of our nights. – Keep Walking.
My hobbies include dancing Lingala, reading, meditating, sports, and creating conversations. I sing, rap, play football, teach, and make beats and when I’m not writing or performing poetry I’m probably on You Tube watching music videos or stuff on business. I also mentor young poets and manage company social media accounts.
One day when someone told me my writing prevented them from committing suicide. That hit me so hard. I cried.
The best advice I have been given was to live like an open book. Thus my two values I hold close uncompromisingly are honesty and transparency.
My most popular lines include;
There are never right ways of doing wrong things. – Silent Ladder
