Born on Christmas Eve 1963, David D Kush is a native of Indiana, United States of America. A prolific writer and a regular in poetry groups, David Kush writes so that his words give “Hope and Light” to humanity. Moulded in the furnace of life’s devastating experiences, his poems fill the readers with Eros, the life wish. He recalls his rendezvous with poetry: “After trying to take my life and going into a deep depression, I cried out to the Lord to put me back to the way I was. He heard my cries. When the depression lifted, I started writing as never before”. In other words, his life itself is a poetic tale of pain yielding pleasure. In “Letter to Myself”, the poet addresses himself. The grief and regret that shroud the beginning of the poem give way to hope and triumph at the end.
