Mich

“Life is a series of pulls back and forth… A tension of opposites, like a pull on a rubber band. Most of us live somewhere in the middle. A wrestling match…Which side win? Love wins. Love always wins”

― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Hello everyone! 

You have showered my poetry with so much love over the last two years. So, I thought I take this chance to thank y’all again and reintroduce myself, especially because I could see so many new followers every day.

.

My name is Michelle, friends, and family calls me Mich, that’s why I go by “Poetry by Mich” in all of my social media accounts.

.

I graduated with a degree in Journalism, but pursued a career in the academe as a teacher and later a College Professor.

.

I started writing poetry when I was a little girl, with my father whom I fondly call “papa” as my mentor and inspiration.

.

I started an anonymous blog in April 2013. And even with my anonymity, I could see people follow my blog site.

.

2019, changed everything when I published my first book “After Rain Skies: a compilation of true and inspiring stories of abuse and violence”. I had to reveal my true identity.

.

2020, the pandemic happened. People were stuck at home and traveling or going out was literally impossible. I took solace in writing more poetry at home. 

.

December 2020, “What If Snowflakes Don’t Fall In Winter?” was born. It went on the number 3 trending spot in KOBO. COM, the paperback copy was released in January of 2021. We sold over 300 copies in the first week of the announcement.

.

February 2021, I published another book “Oh! Dear One”, a compilation of poetry for the persevering soul written at the height of worldwide lockdowns and travel restrictions.

.

May 2021, I published another poetry book “I Would Fly To Where You Are”. I was so thrilled to see it in the top 3 trending ebooks in Kobo for the 5 consecutive days, and what’s more thrilling was when it made it to the Amazon Best Sellers list on Poetry in Love

.

August 2021, I published another poetry book “I Will Love You Forever Too”. I went straight to No. 1 spot (Poetry book in Love) both in KOBO.COM and AMAZON in less than 24 hours of its release. And up to this writing, I still couldn’t believe it. It’s something most authors could only hope and dream of. But, yeah dreams do come true.

.

lastly, allow me to say that whatever life throws at you, go back to the basics and ask yourself: what and who matters most in my life? Because sometimes we get so caught up by all of our worries and concerns and troubles and problems that we tend to forget the reason why we juggle to try and survive life: we do it for our loved ones. at the end of the day, regardless of LOVE wins. LOVE always wins!
