August 2007 Update: Early last year I used Borget’s 5 Star Ratings Script and it worked great. But when my webhost upgraded to higher version of PHP, it doesn’t work anymore, I can’t figure out what went wrong. I even asked Borget’s help and he was so eager to help, but still I couldn’t make it work. Just recently I saw a WP-Ratings Plugin and decided to use it for my poems, submitted poems and inspirational pages.
It’s been a long time since I last composed a poem, the last one was Dear Jesus which I composed on August 2003.
After more than 3 years, I was able to write again, this time, the poem is for my Baby Sean. I don’t know when I started writing it but I was able to write a few lines. After few months I came across that unfinished poem again and decided to add few more lines, and so my latest poem God’s Gift was born.
I don’t know when will I be composing again. Perhaps after another three years? I hope not!
I started composing poems when I was in first year high school (1990). Some of the poems are based on my personal experiences, while others are based on my friends’ stories.
There are times that I can easily compose a poem, maybe it depends on my mood, or it depends on the “topic”. It would take me 1 hour or less to create a poem, but sometimes it also take me months to create one especially if I am running out of rhyming words in the topic. There are some poems that I’ve started but I can’t finish maybe because of lack of interest or something.
