Thank you so much for all the support and love you’ve given my poetry so far. This was a long time coming but I’m so happy it’s finally here. I’ve decided to gather up a handful of poems from what I’ve posted on this blog so far and put it in a Wattpad book for those of you who prefer that platform. I have arranged these poems into a thematic series that explores the ups and downs between losing one’s voice and the triumph of finding the creative power within.
From wingless birds to creative masters – voices can be silenced but there is nothing that can stop wild imagination when it strikes.
You’ve all been wonderful people and I don’t think I would have the guts to do this without your enthusiasm. So thank you once again and please enjoy. There will be more to come so please follow and stay tuned for more updates.
God bless and have a nice day!
Yours truly, Angel

Very recently, I came upon a creature with an interesting story to tell and inspiration struck. This creature was none other than the hermit crab.
While many other creatures on the beaches and swamps seem boasted about not needing a shell, this interesting creature enjoyed carrying his little corner of solitude around with him. He’s a real introvert, a little shy about coming out, but he’s happy. (Who knows, maybe he’s writing a book in there. Haha. Shh….)
If he can be happy the way he is, what does that say about the other introverts out there then? Who’s to say they have to leave their shells?
