Poet's Corner

If I were an alien

If I were an alien
I would not let on
that my planet was inhabited
it would be cloaked
and that is no joke
for human beings like playing war

If I were an alien
I’d have peace in my world
We wouldn’t be fighting over religion gender or sexuality
we’d have an utopian society.

If I were an alien
I’d simply just be
Seeking answers to this reality
I’d want to find a way to time travel
and unravel the universes mysteries
see what happened at the start and the end
and in between.

If I were an alien
I wouldn’t have pets I’d have friends
I’d nurture creatures to grow
I’d help them to develop
and envelope their hearts with love and creativity

If I were an alien
I’d live a great and long life
full of awesome experience and knowledge
I’d make sure my fellow alien’s also foraged
for knowledge, for learning is infectious
I’d not let anyone be directionless.

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.
