As most of you are aware, I have written poetry for just a few short years and over that time have amassed a number of pieces. I shared much of my work at Hub pages and gathered a rather tidy following of loyal readers. However much has changed at the Hubs and with those changes have come much unrest for many creative writers and poets, causing many of them to leave and find a home elsewhere, never joining Hub pages for the earning power, I simply wanted to share my work and read others, and leave worthy reviews.
Now with my new website I can not duplicate my work at both places, so I have chosen to remove all of my poetry at the Hubs and continue to grow and promote my site. Since I am not at the Hubs for the money, it makes more sense to enjoy the fruits of friendships and loyalties I’ve amassed at Vincent Moore.ca
I will be sharing all future work directly from my site, blogging more and developing short stories that will enhance my type of genre. Melancholia, sorrow, dreary, sadness, beauty, darkness, life and death. Developing stories that will stir and move you to tears or laughter, penning my thoughts of roads less travelled.
Stories hidden in my closet, fears and tears I’ve felt with each passing year, who I was, what I became and where I am now. Friends I have cried and laughed with, some who died tragically, too young, with no future. How we as children frolicked in the mean streets of our city, playing, strung out on fantasy, supporting each other’s hopes and dreams, without a care in the world, never knowing how we would meet our end. We lived for each day, and let our futures take care of itself and in its own good time.
So with this said, I pray your loyalty will stay true and my work will still be read, not at the Hubs, but here at my site. I will comment on your work and follow it as posted, many of you I read and review and share with others. I feel this is the only way to circulate our work together. Twitter, Face book and Google+ are all excellent social venues to exploit to the fullest with sharing each others efforts. We are all in this together, to read, review and share. What better way to do this than by supporting one another as we travel through this life together as writers and poets. Let’s aim high, keep moving towards the mark, singing our praises to one another through our pens.
Remembering that the written word will always be mightier than the sword and in the end love will prevail, right will overtake wrong, peace will be found, wars will end, new birth will come forth, bringing with it eternal hope. Our world is going through tough times, but I know that by working together our species can make it right. Let’s give peace a chance and as John Lennon sang, all we need is love to do this. As writers we can promote these things, so let’s write and never grow weary, we will be heard.
