Anthony Desmond is a twenty-two-year-old Detroit born published writer & poet, now residing in Center Line, Michigan. He first discovered a gift for writing at the age of sixteen. He firmly believes he is but a vessel for a higher power who shares this selfsame passion for the written word. Intrigued by affliction & dolor; he explores these emotions across a wide array of subject areas: politics, death, the hypocrisy of religion & the struggles of everyday life. His bold statement pieces are often dark, granular observations of the world he inhabits. Anthony believes in testing the limits of the permissible: his poetry is honest, unadulterated and breaches the norms of the expected. He is loathe to hold back on a thought or feeling, even at the risk of offending his reader. Desmond's poetry (sometimes credited as Anthony Scott) can be found in many magazines and anthologies, including: What is Inspiration: Thoughts on Life Series Vol. 1, Railroad Poetry Magazine, The Rusty Nail Magazine, Tuck Magazine, Signal from Static: a collection of modern poetry & The dVerse Anthology: Voices of Contemporary World Poetry.

I let my tears fall with my head held high; mother always told me: “Just because you’re a man, doesn’t mean you can’t cry.” #micropoetry #poetry #writers #writersofinstagram #like4like #follow #mom #home #hardpart #360waves #mustache
