Danyea was born in Belfast and has an engineering background. He is a late starter to writing and is inspired by the complexity of nature. This is the first time he has shared his work publicly.

Death to the Bored by Danyea
A lifetime forsaken,
chances untaken.
A heart to bestow,
yet can’t let go.

A wish and desire,
fall to the pyre.
A commitment much sought,
fails to be bought.

An ending looming,
no flowers blooming.
A reflection ignored
brings death to the bored.
