A Stranger Within

Updated: Apr 18, 2019

A Stranger Within (with two other poems: A Prayer of a Better World and Dear Mentor) is featured and published in Adelaide Literary Magazine, No. 22, March 2019. The poems are not only featured on the magazine but on their website.

The first poem, A Stranger Within, is a piece about how one person can be friendly face but at the same time, can be a stranger to that person.


The second poem, A Prayer of a Better World, is about the world we currently live in. Today, we live in a world filled with various issues that can do so much harm to one another, whether it is to ourselves or to each other.


The third and final poem, Dear Mentor, is a letter to a close mentor. Mentors are a leading hand that can may help you discover your true self. This letter is not just to a single mentor but to all mentors, from bosses to teachers even to the wisest people.


I hope that you enjoy reading all three poems that are featured in the Adelaide Literary Magazine as much as I enjoy writing all three poems.
