Discoveries

The purest of songs are not composed but are discovered.
Lying dormant since time began, they wait patiently to be unearthed.
It is not for us to dictate their direction for they are born of themselves —
We are merely the privileged Discoverers.

— Daniel Torridon

In Two Minds


Dear Reader,

Most likely, as you read these poems, you will have a notion of what they mean, at least to you. It is not my desire to detract from your personal interpretations. The wonderful thing about a poem is that it can have different meanings to different readers. However, as is often the case, and certainly with my poetry, there is the “official” interpretation — the intention of the writer — and so, to the curious reader, I offer the following by way of explanation. Many of my poems are inspired by my experience of Bipolar disorder, otherwise known as Manic Depression. Through my poetry I lay bare the scars that have contributed to who I am today.
