My name is Timothy Joshua Chia, and I am a writer based in Singapore. My ambition is to inspire and change the world, in whatever way I can. In writing, I want to write, endlessly, infinitely, till the day my ink runs dry. I wish to share my experiences and my life with the world and to connect with different kindred souls through words.
I believe that poetry is the art of stringing words like velvet to provide a blanket of solace through our darkest nights – nights which we all have. In return, I hope to spread my words further and to hear people’s voices, and hopefully see that my words could somehow heal their brokenness.
More importantly, I wish to spread hope to others – which is why I often try to include elements of optimism (in an eventual, big picture sort of way) in my writing, hoping to let readers know that all of us are broken one way or another, and though these fragments of us which are broken can make or break who we are, each fragment will seed a new beginning, with hope and words as our light to guide these seeds to full bloom.
