IMG_2963Hello folks,

I’m Matthew Arrant, born and raised in West Covina, California. I’m the second oldest of 3 children. We are products of a veteran father and a mother who is a caretaker. Growing up in a rural area of California meant everyday was a battle. I struggled as an adolescent trying to find my identity. Music and sports played a huge role for me. I was always active, whether it was playing in the city championship, or listening to my favorite rappers; pretending to be them. That’s when I IMG_7656found writing. I would listen to those lyrics that meant a lot to me which allowed me to become something I was not for a moment. I soon realized how powerful words could be.

I began writing my own lyrics, hoping one day to make music; telling my own story. Although I never made it with music, I transitioned to writing poetry. I would write day and night. Writing was my escape from the reality outside my door. It opened many doors for me. I began attending open mics periodically, I created a blog where I displayed my work, I found a sense of direction I wanted to take in my life; which involves writing.

To me, words are so powerful. All those words I would ink onto the paper slowly became my thoughts, ideas, simply verbs. Words are powerful. My goal is to make material that’s relatable. I want the words to have such an affect that the reader feels exactly what they’re reading as if they were in that exact moment.

My journey is just beginning. I feel I am at my peak. I’ve surrounded myself with incredible individuals who are uplifting, motivating, and most importantly, supportive. I just want to touch as many people as I can on this journey with my words. The best is yet to come.
