Poems »

Hi.....my name is Carl Anthony Semien, I was born on Oct 25th 1957 in Lake Charles, La. I found my passion for writing poetry when I entered my first poetry contest with Poetry.com in 1997 with the poem "A Place" which gave me my first poetry Editor's Choice Award. Since then I've published two poetry books and received 5 more Awards. Writing is a vent for me and I'm a better person because of it! Now I reside in Hollywood, Ca. Where I continue writing to inspire, encourage, and challenge my readers and other fellow poets out there! Hope my poems brings optimism, change, to make this world a better place. And most importantly, when my life is over, let it be said....."I Contributed more than I Criticized!"
