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

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)

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.

Avell Kro: I've only just started reading this, but I can see that this writer really knows her stuff. Her theme is painful and traumatic, and her sense of place is deep and strong.
