“Hello, my name is Tanvir Singh. I am a Hamilton native, born and bred – I absolutely love this city for how it has molded me into the individual I am today. Through the relationships I’ve developed in different pockets of the community, I owe a lot to the city of Hamilton.
Why did I start writing poetry? To be honest, I don’t really know. I knew I needed a creative outlet because I consistently have a whirlwind of thoughts going through my head at any given time – I’ve always had an inclination.
For writing, and this just seemed like a good exercise. I didn’t realize how much I would enjoy it, or how many individuals in my immediate circle resonate with what I have been sharing. I don’t have any plans of becoming an established poet, but it wouldn’t be the worst thing to happen.
