About me



Hello,

 As a matter of fact, it is hard to come across a physicist with a strong affinity for poetry. Fortunately for you, I am one. My name is Akinyemi AbdulMalik.



My journey to poetry was inspired by a girl I saw on TV long before I chose to study Physics in the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA). Although I have a vague recollection of her words, the feeling I got hereafter still lingers in my heart. She recited the poem she had composed so beautifully that I felt like hugging her through the screen.

Slowly, I began my research into poetry, and I started scribbling whatever I felt was poetry enough to scribble. Honestly, the journey wasn’t a smooth one (given that I was a novice). Sometimes, the reactions I got from people after reading my poems tempted me to give up. But I am glad that I didn’t, and this has shaped me into the poet that I am today.

My poems have been featured on some magazines like the Cliqq magazine, Al-Furqan magazine (FUTA), the Islamic World of Talents' anthology, By Me Poetry, etc. You can also read some of my poems HERE

NB: Except stated otherwise, the write-ups on this blog are mine.

The path of poetry led me to other genres like fiction, essay, and so on. In 2016, I bagged the second prize for the GIC (Glorious Islamic Center) national essay competition. Currently, I am working on my first novella. You can read some of my stories HERE.

In order to echo my own voice and the voice of others, and also to entertain people and make reading fun, I created this blog. Trust me, there is still a lot to discover.

And remember, there is always something to write; something to read; and the pens of scribes have not gone to their eternal rest. Love you *wink*
