& Here’s some more…
I started writing poetry at the age of 13 and 6 years down the line, I can genuinely say that poetry has saved me one too many times. I never shared my poetry with anyone until I was about 15 because I was a shy kid but I slowly came out of my shell and started posting my poetry on Tumblr towards the end of Summer 2014. My true love is Spoken Word and I came in 3rd position at my very first, and only, Slam competition to date during my first year at the university of Edinburgh where I am currently studying French&Philosophy. My favourite poets are Miles Hodges, Jasmine Mans, Nayyirah Waheed, Warsan Shire, Rupi Kaur and Charles Bukowski.
My name is Osunsanya Michael. First of all, I’m a Christian. Also, I am a medical student, proud Yoruba man, poet/spoken word artist, songwriter, photographer, fried plantain dissector and banter lover. I love art very much. It’s the oil I run on. I’m not an engine, I know, but let’s just say I am.
