John Archievald Gotera


I was born in raised in San Francisco, CA. I enjoy spending time with my wonderful family and pets. I'm a spiritual person who enjoys hiking, meditating, cooking, healthy-eating, and yoga. I'm always adventurous in a sense of discovering new hobbies & interests.

I look back at all the poems I have written and appreciate the evolution of my writing style and techniques. Prior to winter 2006, I had little interest in poetry until a few, interesting events weaved together. These few incidents guided to me poetry as an outlet to my many burstful emotions longing for a steam of release. As a result, I ended up writing about over half of the material in less than a week's time which debuted in my first poetry compilation, Misty Dawn Road.

These days I continue to write poems. And I've dared myself to venture my way into creating short stories.

Bittersweet World of Uncertain Hearts entails every reason to long for love, but at the same time, the bitter notes throughout the set of poems sweep us with caution, skepticism, and an evasion to love.

Until now, I've kept them buried inside a broken shelter known as The Home of Carmine Red.
