Poet's Corner


Letters to people telling them our truth
giving them imagery, our proof.
Doorways that never shut into places never seen
emotional content that never relents from letting us know
what it means to be human.
Snapshots into daily life
Dreams past and present that show how we can change the lives we lead
how we got there and struggles that made us sweat and bleed
and yet sometimes smile.
A file documented in a book or on a computer
for people to interpret in many ways
our history written in so many ways down the ages
our inheritance we will want to preserve
our learning curve for generations to come
the history for us all to struggle to become one.

About the author

Dan Hooks

Hi there my name is Dan Hooks and I am a poet.

My poetry has many diverse themes from madness to the mundane, from fantasy and fable to philosophical and the darkness of reality (whatever that is).

I have been writing since I was 18 and have inspired other artists such as Benjamin Heine who created an piece of art work called”filled with fire” from my poem called “Freedom”. That poem was inspired from a quote from Nelson Mandela saying “we are free to be free”. Writing I find is a collaborative process.

I have also written other poems which have been used in language courses in America, Canada and Australia. One of which is called “poem on identity” and the other one is “Antithesis”.

I have a soundcloud account in which I post poems to music and my spoken word pieces. I find spreading my work on various social media platforms really useful for presenting my work.

I am also fond of travelling and have climbed Mount Fuji in Japan visited Finland skied in both USA in keystone Colorado and Whistler in Canada. I find perspective can be found in travelling to other countries and it also helps you appreciate other cultures as well your own.
