Some of the words I have written here will hurt those who matter: and for that, I am sorry.
But I cannot lie about what I feel when I write for myself.
These words record a part of my self that I wish to remember. And so I continue to write: in the hope that in time, my words will bring me to that point where everything is forgiven.

Hello, and welcome to might war – the online musical.
I have been using pen and paper to record my thoughts and experiences for so long now, that I am unable to state when I first started writing. But outside of messages and gifts, my writing was done for my sole pleasure and fill a number of notebooks that I return to from time to time.
This site is something of an experiment to find out what other people think about my writing and a direct result of my brother-from-another-mother telling me to “share” my writing.
The site is divided into a number of distinct sections.
About: A little bit about me for your reading pleasure – and proof that I am in fact a living, breathing person and not just a figment of my own imagination.

The editors of this site would like to make clear that the views expressed herein are not necessarily the thoughts of sane and otherwise normal people, but are downloaded from the quiet (and sometimes not so quiet) places of my personal cerebrum. Therefore, should anyone perusing the content take offence or dislike to anything they read, please bear in mind that you don’t have to finish reading.

As is standard with these things, the site offers you the option to post a comment in relation to the pieces of work. Please note that this is NOT a compulsory activity! If you wish to leave a response, do so. If not, no one will judge you. After all, this is not a test.
I would however, be interested in your thoughts on the work included here and would appreciate it if you would use the Rate This and Like This buttons as the quickest means of leaving an opinion.
Just so you know though: I am likely gonna disappoint many of you, as I am not so good at responding to comment messages. Seriously, weeks go by without me opening my emails – and I’ve had the same account for years! I’m gonna try my best to read through all comments left and to respond where necessary, but seeing as I’m currently suffering from a long-term illness that affects my eyesight and movements on a daily basis, this could be a bit of a slow process.
Where to Start?
The Categories section will give you a good introduction to the different elements of work recorded on the site.
After that, it’s up to you. Have a nosey around and stop where the mood takes you.
So feel free to peruse at your leisure, as I present the mumblings and musings of an African immigrant on the interweb. Go on, I dare you …
P.S.: Despite the formidable name, I am quite nice to know; so please feel free to contact me.
