Who am I, after I tell you I’m a Creative Explorer?

The answer to that first of all is Wordsmith. What I do is put words together in many different forms be it lyrically or within poetry, playwriting or writing for screen, journaling and scribbling stuff down.

Once the writing is done or begun I then manifest those words into a living breathing entity that lives past thought and paper, an entity that lives within a musical frequency, that lives through spoken word or brought to life on stage and on film.

The words I put together create a vision that all can indulge in.

Words create reality, words induce vision. Perhaps one day I’ll received as a visionary.

Ballyman is a short film being written by Faruq Adigun, currently in development with SOUNDS LiKE CHAOS.

For now, you can watch Faruq’s poetry film, ‘Eighth of the First,’ below:


Hmm I Wonder
(spoken word & short film)

An absurd poem looking at the principles of perspective through spoken language and film. This poem flips reality on its head or tails. Yet, what is reality when each of us could have a different definition for a word or a different story for a situation. Look at it this way or that way, the facts remain the same. This is a poem made by me on the day that I made it.

Times like this
(spoken word)

Times like this focuses on my feeling and understanding right now, in the center of a changing world. Times like this is a reminder to persevere. A reminder to look on the bright side.

It’s like it creeps in the night but lurks through the day
the people are in awe
some think yes, this is awesome
the rest think no, this awful
at first the feeling was powerless
like a glass filled cup
re assessed
now, I feel
power filled
they said no
no picnics in fields
lock yourselves down till the world gets healed
I’m glad, I myself have healed
healed from the pressure
these days the pain I feel is lesser
apart from when my uncle died
my eyes got wetter
last time I saw him I didn’t say much so perhaps I’ll send him a letter
I’m sure he’ll receive it never
but that’s better than never ever
never have I ever lost a figure so close
so today I would like to raise a toast
to the NHS, I’ll for them I’ll clap to infinity
and for the families who have lost their anchors
Don’t blame yourselves, the selection was made at random
