Poems »

I was born and raised in Eastern parts of Ethiopia in the city of Harar, I was attended elementary and secondary school in Haile Selassie Day School in Addis Ababa. I remember when I was in grade 7, I won a prize for being the best student - a book "Alice in Wonderland," from Emperor Haile Selassie, King of Ethiopia. From High School, I was rewarded scholarship for higher education on City Administration, and Social Studies in the cities of Luneburg, Aachen and Dusseldorf, West Germany. I had also a humble opportunity of learning Western culture, German language and associated closely with hard working German people. My fascination and love for poems goes many years back, when I was in grade 7, one day our English teacher read, "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star ...," since then I wanted to write poems. In 1995 I had an opportunity to join, The International Library of Poetry. Since then I expressed on variety of topics or titles; I call it my ABC poems. I see my life experience as my greatest teacher, and I love to share what I have had acquired over many years with others, however, every day I am a learner. It is my strong belief and philosophy, if a person has interest and willpower can achieve his goal. As a child, my important figure was my mother. She taught me the Ethiopian alphabets, and love of family and surroundings that helped me to see many things positively. Unfortunately, despite my wonderful childhood experience and growth; I encountered many ups and down of life journey that too taught me a lesson. Now, I am in my senior years being old is wisdom. There is a saying, "quitters are losers," and I don't want that to apply on me.
