Author has written 16 stories for Life, Love, and Friendship.

I am a poet from South Africa, everyday learning about love, life and ubuntu. The universe has thrown me across many intrapersonal journeys which have sometimes left me wrecked and other times left me content with the beauty in things which others may find unappealing.

I care about the world and making a change for the common good of humanity. I want to inspire people to be better then than themselves and to recognise the potential they possess to change their existence, their environment and the energy of others.

Not everything can be perfect with an objective lens, but if you start to see life with a combination of logical objectivity and expressive subjectivity, you'll find joy in all things.

I have a profile on SoundCloud under the name of Kris Harmony. I also have a blog on Blogger called Water Monkey Adventures under the name Mr Shave. Either or both might be worth checking out if you like my poetry (or if you want a change of scenery).

Untitled by DarlingHarleyQuinn
Lately I have no idea what I'm doing in life. I don't know how to get the things I want, how I got where I am. But some one asked me if I still write.

Baby you're a hurricane! by Dreamsamor
So it's a song basically. I went away with a friend of mine. He's amazing and I love him. It was the best trip I've ever been on. So the story behind this is that I was saying I'm calm and quiet. He said not when you're excited you aren't. The first line is what he said to me. I came up with the rest at 5 am lol life of a writer.

The Faux Kisses From the Fake Fox
When someone claims they love you and that you're apart of their future, you fail to see the reality that they may be telling a lie. But, while I hold onto the good memories and regard my former love highly, there were still feelings which irked my soul which I needed to get out. This poem is a manifestation of those feelings.

A Wise Woman Told Me reviews
We cross paths with people all the time. Each of us in the world are unique. Accepting this can go a long way in helping us achieving happiness. And listening to others when they confess their philosophies to you assists that journey to inner happiness. There is a related musical piece on my SoundCloud profile called 'A Journey in the Hills' under the name 'Kris Harmony'.

Let It Rain
I left my home country for the first time to an unknown place for 5 months, with different languages, very contrasting environments and very diverse people. I was left with the idea, before leaving, that in many ways I'm just a flicker in the history of the human race and also that I would be evaporating from everyone's lives in the way that I remember them.

The Omnipotent Squirrel
After finally setting up ADSL at my flat, I decided to call the wireless access point OmnipotentSquirrel, since the signal is constantly moving up and down, left and right. Much like a squirrel. It seemed to me to be a good way to compare the internet to a lively animal such as a squirrel and thus I wrote the poem.
