Poet's Corner

Woman your beauty hides your brilliance

Woman, your beauty hides your brilliance.
You have to be resilient
to survive in a world stolen by men
even when you are the closest thing to god.
Woman, you are maligned
hidden by religions veil
they tell the tale of Eve throughout time
the sinners tale
original sin another story to enslave
don’t they know a mother’s wisdom can save?
A man from falling fruitless from a tree
hanging desperately.

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.
