My name is Derick

I reside in Boston. (born & raised)

I’m 41 years young.

I’ve been writing poetry for 20 years.

My influences are Mya Angelou, Nikki Giovanni, Langston Hughes, Pablo Neruda, and 2pac.

Throughout my years of writing poetry I’ve accomplished a lot such as attending four poetry conventions, received plaques, trophies, and medallions for my poetry.

I plan on getting my poetry book published in the near future.

I was voted “Poet of the month” from a website called (Poeticnites)

More of my accomplishments include being published in four online poetry magazines, and poetry anthologies.

With my poetry I hope to inspire, and help those become a better person.

Coming soon I’ll be starting my own t-shirt business!!!

  1. you are driven for success, and in your life you have been blessed. Stay focused and continue to do you, and with each day you awaken anew. A gift is what you have to give to us, with each line you write it is no fuss. For you are a good person I can already tell, and you will inspire and change and do very well. Glad to have taken the time to talk to you today, let me handle my business and get up out of your way. 🙂

  2. effortless is a word I would use to describe you. The way you come across, your demeanor and personality all seem so true. Very sweet and kind and caring to, are some of the words I would use to describe you. dont know what life has in store for you or me but I am glad I had this opportunity to find things about you in these past few. keep you head up and stay determined for your goals in life….with that god can only give you great things and maybe a wife.. kisses and love from your number three because I am sure mommie and daddie are in front of me 🙂
