Hello ”?”
My name is Martin and I’m very willing to listen, learn, talk, and be heard! I make it my priority to be happy and make the most of every situation, including this hell hole. Outside of me, I also love to bring joy and create smiles to anybody who might need a booster shot. No, not the covid shot! LOL. I love laughing, inspiring and overall just enjoying life but when it’s time to get serious best believe I’m locked in not locked up!

Being creative is something I enjoy doing. I’m a writer of poetry and love listening to music as well. I don’t have kids either. I’m looking for genuine people that are honest and open as I look to return the favor. I believe consistency is important as well.

So enough about “I”. What about you? I would love to. Hear from you stranger. Tell me some of the things you like doing. I’ll be listening to everything you have to say. The fastest way to communicate with me is on Oh, and I’m sorry for the question mark, I couldn’t spell your name right!

Talk soon hopefully!
Your potential friend,


I hate just sitting around all day watching TV
So every day I sit at my desk writing these thoughts for me
This is how I really find inner peace so I can cope
It’s very therapeutic for my mind and drive of my hope

The realest quote ever is the mind being a terrible thing to waste
As precious that is you should keep running it like a race
Most powerful tool given to you is the ability to think
Your brain is your strongest muscle, exercise it or it shrinks

Of course I took that as good advice words from the wise
When you come to a place like this it’s a blessing in disguise
Don’t think I’m crazy but here people realize their talents and gifts
Once you realize you got the potential you get that spiritual lift

Another good quote is you got to be silent in order to listen
Silent and listen have the same letters if you paid attention
Just sit back, meditate, focus and let you and your mind work together
That’s the best ammunition anyone have that’ll carry you forever.
