My name is Derick
I reside in Boston. (born & raised)
I’m 39 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 this year I’ll be starting my own t-shirt business!!!
