The theme of Lucifer’s Grief is the final biblical quarrel between God and Lucifer.

I’ve been writing poetry for more than ten years now.

7) What is your passion in life?
I have many passions in life, but my most cherished and sought after is my kids. I do anything for their wellbeing, success and happiness.
