The Author

Hi there! I am the Weird Poet. Millenial. I love poetry, I love food, I love books, I love life! I write poems, stories, essays, and so much more.

My name is Leo Nekko Romero, 22 years old, also known as, ‘The Weird Poet’, a graduate of the degree Bachelor of Arts, major in Philosophy at Bicol University in 2016. I am  currently having my second degree (not revealing that yet!) in Aquinas University of Legazpi. I am living in the humble city of Legazpi, beautiful province of Albay, the home of the famous Mayon Volcano (if you might wanna ask!) in the Philippines, Southeast Asia. I am a proud pure-blooded Filipino.

I started writing when I was in grade school, when I became member of our editorial staff in our school publication. In high school, I became the President of our English Club. In college, I also became the Managing Editor of our publication, “The Aletheia”. As a romantic, a dilettante writer and a philosophy graduate, I have also been contributing poem compositions at poetry.com. I have writing poem verses as far as I could remember. I already wrote my very first poem when I was 8.

Today I am starting up my very own blog to re-discover and revive this hobby, and to share to the world my ideas, thoughts, sentiments, and experiences about life and the wonders about it. Poetry has helped me in various ways. Without it, I am essentially nothing. Despite the changes I’ve encountered in my twenty-two years of existence, this hobby remains fresh, new, and constant. I may fail at some points of my journey because of my humane choices, but definitely, I won’t ever fail on this one!

I love writing and it has been a huge part of myself.

If I can’t express myself in ways I fail to do, in ways I cannot do because I’m too frightened to say it in person, I’ll say it here.
