The following poems have all been written during the course of my M.A. (Research) in Creative Writing at Waterford Institute of Technology. Prior to commencement of the programme all my published poems had end-line rhyme as I believed strongly that poetry had to have rhyme. My supervisor Janice Fitzpatrick-Simmons and my class colleagues encouraged me to liberate my style, and so I began to move towards free-verse. These poems are the result. Most of the poems are autobiographical in nature, and have a particular focus on my childhood.
