I have been writing poems since I was about 12. I am interested in the intricate beauty of language, it's messages and anger and power to love and inspire. I enjoy playing with language to test its maliability sometimes puns, or sounds or shapes, but always the beauty of the words and their places of humour, anger, comfort, love, loneliness, or hatred, exasperation, justice and injustices, ... more »

    You are an excellent poet. Your poems encourage one to think about life a little more than if they hadn't been read. Thank you, I shall enjoy a poem a day of yours to consider your thoughts on life in general. Nessy x

Best Poem of Danny Draper

I Live In Hope (In Memory Of Martin Luther King Jr.)

I live in hope that one day
We will live in a world
Without discrimination and bigotry
Where our children will know love
Without division or agenda,
One race, the human race
Where love is acceptance and respect,
Where difference is celebrated and valued
To unify, strengthen and enrich us
by its diversity.

I live in hope that one day
All women and children
will be safe, day and night
To live without fear and violence
And our children will be cherished
and nurtured and loved
Without molestation
And will grow in strength
Physically...
