Linda Wanjiru

I am Linda Wanjiru. Poetry is my release, therapy. I write poetry because it is a tool of influence. It delivers a message. It unites and connects the artiste and the lover of art.
I started writing in high school as a form of expression. I was also highly competitive in essay writing and compositions. I found that my imagination had no bounds. If I believed it and wrote it down, the person(s) reading it had to believe with me.

My poetry highlights general societal issues and how they affect us en mass and also individually. It also concentrates on individual struggles and experiences.

I describe my work as old and soulful.
Everything and anything is possible through Christ who strengthens me.
