He elaborates further on what poetry means to him: “For me, poetry is deeply personal, reflective, critical, soul-searching and at the same time full of hope. Robert Frost had said, ‘Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words’ and it became deeply connected to me.” He adds: “I can’t write every day. Sometimes I like what I write not nice. Loving poetry is like being in a relationship with it. There will be great days, good days and bad days and those days will reflect my state of mind, my thoughts about life, the world and my existence. For me, poetry is so like looking in the mirror to understand myself and my thoughts much better.”
