These are some of my writings.

The following collection is a brief written portfolio of some of my lyrics, essays, and poems compiled over the past several years. Some were written as speeches, some were written for school assignments, and others were written purely out of personal interest and a need for expression. Written works are literary photographs. Welcome to my photo album.
