Epigraph


I don’t consider myself a poet
I just write some words on paper
and I am not a musician
I never learn to play the guitar

and please don’t call an author
I never could have a best seller
but if you want to call me something
just call me a story teller

I am not a teacher
was never good at arithmetic
and I am not an actor
some said I’m a little too dramatic

and please don’t think I’m rich
don’t own a house with a wine cellar
if you want to call me something
just call me a story teller

yeah I like to tell all kind stories
from all different sides of life
some are humorous and funny
and some cuts your heart like a knife

I am not someone famous
me and the camera never really click
although my last name is “Ishmael”
is in the great novel Moby dick

I am from the island of Trinidad and Tobago
a fact that I so proudly claim
land of the humming bird, scarlet ibis
the pitch lake and sugar cane

I am not a very smart person
I leave school when I was only seven
and I don’t believe in religion
just do good and you will go to heaven

I like to take walks on the sand
And in mayaro beach one time I saw a shark
And I like to look up at stars
And how they twinkle in the dark

And when I am standing outside
I like to see small planes with propellers
so if you want to call me something
just call me a story teller

I like to play cricket and football
With the boys back in 2nd street
And after we drinking some cold beers
And cooking a pot of something to eat

And I like to write about my boyhood days
From la romain, Indian trail and marabella
And tales I heard from my grandmother
Who was the best story teller

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

David Ramati: I can easily identify with the characters as having gone through those terrible times myself. The writer has skillfully brought yet another side of those days to life. A good read which I recommend to everyone.

Mary Abigail: I have always been a serious reader but reading romance has always been an outlet for me to be happy and this, makes me happy. It's entertaining with just enough drama and maybe a bit more - I do need more.

ngonisiga: I am at loss for words in my attempt to descibe the sublimeness of this story. Kudos to you! I am so impressed at the way the story weaves itself from Navarre to England and back and finally to Sicily. You left me wanting more for this is the stuff dreams are made of in book lovers.

PersephanieBoyce: I was intrigued with the subject of this book from the snip it I read, and as I continued to read I felt like I was inside the characters brain. His thought processes, his memories, everything was so beautifully and forcefully made aware.The descriptions were vivid and detailed. At times, I did t...

Radecki: This is one of the freshest stories I've read in a while. Author (Thetawave) has accomplished that rare feat of creating something original. If I had to label his writing style I would call it "baroque LSD".

ElusiveBadwolf: I'm so disappointed that i'm already at the end because i love this book so much! I hope the second will come fast and i enjoyed it very much! You are a very good writer and i hope it will help you to get what you want to be!

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now.
