During my last year at college, I took one of the best courses that I have ever taken: Introduction to Creative writing. I will admit that I only took it to fullfill some humanities electives for my physics degree, and heard that it was an easy course, but it changed much of the way that I look at things. To a young man who spent almost all of my time writing very techincal and logically sound papers, I found a release for my creative side, which I did not realize that I needed. I don't remember the poet's name who taught the course, but he taught me to love it.
These are some of the pieces that I wrote at that time and since then. I freely admit that they are not the best in the world, but I am proud of a few of them. If you have any comments or criticisms, feel free to mail them to me. None of these works can be considered finished.
Style is knowing who your are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.
