The Poetry Corner featuring Sylvester L. Anderson

Hello and good morning everyone!

Today I want to introduce Sylvester L. Anderson as he joins us for the first time on the Poetry Corner. Let’s get to know him,

About Slyvester L. Anderson: I’ve been writing poetry since high school. I love creating with words and my goal is to inspire through my poetry. I have two collections of poetry self-published. “Life Through Celestial Lenses” and “The Darkness, The Light, And The Glory” both of which are available on I am currently in the process of putting together my third collection.

Today he’s sharing his poem, Small Town Sparkle.Β 

Small Town Sparkle

Small town girl

Larger than life vocals

Big city lights calling

Greyhound bus to the grand stage

Audition after audition, but no center stage

Waiting tables and counting tips

Sad nights reading letters from home

Her ticket was one way

And she wasn’t ready to return home

Countless auditions and small little parts

Then someone noticed her sparkle within

Her name was dropped among important friends

She has taken her place on the grand stage

Now her headshot hangs where she once waited tables

And back home, she’s the talk of the town

A small town girl

A voice larger than life

Sparkling under the big city lights


Awesome! Thanks for sharing, Sylvester. It was a pleasure to have you with us πŸ™‚

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
