From the prairie flatlands outside the mountains of Colorado is where my history starts. My name is Tyler Caine. I write a lot, but I don’t read often enough; To say I love music is an understatement. I am a feline at heart, I live the duality of Gemini lives. I’m just an oddity; I believe in finding the beauty in life, despite how much I’ve experienced quite the opposite. Poetry is my medium for discovering that, but humanity is what brings it inside. I’m a work in progress, but I’m continuing to build for myself and for you.
As a writer, I would like to share my poetry in this blog for all those who wish to inquire within. You can also find me on Facebook, or under instagram as ” canitouchyourblood “.
I’m 23 years old, born on April 22nd and raised in Tacoma Washington.
I have 4 siblings. A twin sister, an older sister, and an older half sister and brother.
I have always loved nature since before I can remember. When I was about 6 or 7, my dad signed me up for the Scouts, and I was with the Scouts until I was 18.
With this experience, I have learned a lot about how to survive in the wild.
I went to Lincoln High School in Tacoma, class of 2013; Although I did not graduate, I continued to further my education. I first started with obtaining my GED at Tacoma Community College, then I moved down to Glendale Arizona where I went to Glendale Community College for nursing.
I spent 3 months in the program before I came back to Washington and started my career as an auto mechanic, working in dealerships, doing side jobs, or just working on my own vehicle.
Fast forward to 2017. It has been a bumpy ride up to this point; my grandmothers, grandpa, and my mom all lost their lives within this time frame. With that, I was always on the prowl for an adventure. I wanted to experience something new every day. I would quit jobs just because I got tired of the routine.
It’s now 2018. After the murder of my cousin in February, I knew something had to change. My family and I couldn’t stop asking ourselves “why?”.
So now I’m on this crew as part of Project 50 to help find the answer. Why is there so much hate in America? Despite all our differences, what is the one thing we have in common as a civilization?
What is Human?
