Watch the Poetry Reading of MY LIFE TUMBLED AND I FELL. Performed by Val Cole:
Get to know poet A. Goomer:
1) What is the theme of your poem?
The theme of my poem is the struggle to pull yourself up after you lose someone that you love wholeheartedly. Dealing with depression and loss.
2) How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?
I would like people to respond by feeling the emotion of my poem, to connect and heal. Also, to let them know they are not alone in this feeling of total loss and emptiness, it will get better, hang in there.
3) How long have you been writing poetry?
I’ve been writing poetry seriously since 2009, but I’ve been an artist my whole life and have always written.
4) Do you have a favorite poet?
My favorite poet is Edgar Allen Poe
5) What influenced you to submit to WILDsound and have your poetry performed by a professional actor?
I think some people may connect better with a verbal voice than just reading it silently? Plus I am curious to hear the performer’s take on it.
6) Do you write other works? scripts? Short Stories? Etc..?
No, not at this time. I’m just writing poetry, working on a second book right now, a follow-up to My Life Tumbled and I Fell.
7) What is your passion in life?
My passion in life is love, animals and creating! I love helping others who are struggling, because I can relate. If I can help one person who feels lost or hopeless with my book, I would feel amazing 🙂 Life is crazy and really hard, but we can get through it with the help of each other. I love sharing my story with others because I feel like it’s not something people talk about, but we need to. Depression and suicide is very important to talk about and it’s good to know that we can still rise from the flames even if we feel like we never will. Positivity is key, and there is always a silver lining in every tragedy, you just have to see it. It took me 3 years to see it, but I did and here we are.
