Alone

"Alone" by KD Langford

| Website | Facebook | Twitter | A collection of 43 modern day poetry with illustrations. About The Author: KD Langford is a writer from Manchester, in the United Kingdom.  The story so far:  We all have to begin our journey somewhere in life. For me, it was at primary school when my teacher, Mrs Harvey introduced me Creative Writing and I never looked back. Mrs Harvery was a great inspiration to me, and it soon became my favourite lesson.  The years passed by and I found myself at High School where embraced my writing with the thanks to various teachers no one more so than my English and form teacher, Tony Porter.  I'd write two pages, take it back to him, and he'd say "Right, go and write me some more." That's just what I did. At Culcheth High School there was a building known as 'B-block' it was a three-storey concrete block, and he'd allow us to have free roam of the top floor. I'd go and sit in B-32 which was Miss Harper's R.E room and there I'd write, my first piece, called 'Grey Hall.' And at lunchtimes, Malcolm Smith (RIP) would give up his lunch hour and open up A-17 in A-block which was the I.T room. There I'd sit on one of the many BBC-B computers and writer using 'Interword' an old, but outstanding word processor. At the time there American TV series 'Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea' was being aired in the UK, and I'd sit in A-17 and write a story about Admiral Nelson and Captain Lee Crane.
