Hello and thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Farah Lawal and I am an actress, performer, and writer. My work as a creative artist has primarily been through theatrical performance. I am still in a stage of my writing where I feel funny calling myself a “writer” and I chuckle at the thought of labeling myself a “poet.” I look forward to the day when I will feel comfortable using those two titles with as much confidence as I do when I introduce myself as an actress.
My writing started off as a free-writing exercise for myself. I had thoughts to get out, so I started writing every day. I also wanted to work on expanding my imagination because I found myself stagnant. From my free-writes came poems. This wasn’t intentional, but poems started to flow from my thoughts. And once I started writing, I couldn’t stop. In the summer of 2008, I committed to writing every single day and that is when my blog was born.
Here you will find my poems. They are a journey of my mind, so welcome! Please feel free to leave feedback–I love to know how my poems affect people or what reactions they get from reading my words. I can also be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
