My passion for reading eventually turned me into a writer. I am a romantic and my writing reflect just that.

Background Information

Thank you for stepping into my den. I am back almost after two years, thanks to a kind heart. Some of you may remember me and to many I am a new face. So I decided to update my profile. When I came to this site in 2002, I was a novice to poetry. Like a good friend once said my poems then were a timid attempt at poetry. English is not my first language. I was not really much good then and may be even now. Yet I was lavished with hearty encouragement by many which kept me going even after I left this site.

How far I have improved since leaving this site, you have to decide. I mostly write for my satisfaction and most of my writing are from my heart. I try to write down my feelings, my experiences, my dreams and my aspirations.

Pen, they say is mightier than the sword, but I am not here to wage a war. Word is all powerful which you all know. Word can create, heal, entertain and comfort. Word can also tear you apart. I am hoping my words create, heal, entertain and comfort.

There are many in this site I am indebted to. I am not mentioning any names since there are too many and I do not want to omit any name even by oversight. But I want them to know I do not forget.

For those who know me already, I havenít changed, I am the same Joel as before.

Enjoy your visit to my den. Feel free to give your comments, I am open to suggestions and corrections.

"In God I trust, with God I walk"

Who Am I

A man thirsting for wisdom, searching for knowledge

Seeking the truth eternal, reeking with hunger for love

Hailing from the land of spiritual enlightenment

Sailing in the sea of turbulent waters, all alone

Swimming against the tides so fast and furious

Sinking at times and surviving by pure instinct

A man searching for true love and passion

Whose compassion has not won him a nation

Always standing by them that are downtrodden

Fighting a losing battle against unrighteousness

Never relenting against odds too frightening

Always trusting in the will of Him the Creator

Angels guide me in my journey of life mortal

God is the only refuge at times of turmoil

A small man with big ambitions, that is me

Compassion is my weapon, this you may know

A patient man to listen, when you have complaints

A strong pillar if you need a shoulder to cry on

With His hand on me I begin my journey, anew

Wish me good luck, oh, blessed flock of poets
