David J. Greene is a writer of poetry, aphorisms, and fiction. Growing up, he had the opportunity to relocate every few years, meeting new people and experiencing diversity all across the globe. His goal is to compel people to not just see the world at face value, but to look beyond and realize every person has a unique story to tell.

“Our stories may vary, but our determination to make the world a better place one person at a time, can very much be shared.” – David J. Greene

His mission is to make people smile, and provide inspiration and support to anyone whose life he touches. David has published several books and short stories, though his main focus today is poetry and writing motivational quotes. He loves to think outside of the box and some of his ideas have been published for the entertainment and performing community, most notably magicians.

“No matter what you do or what goals you have in place there will always be detours and setbacks. These obstacles might not be something that you can control; the trick is to never stop trying.” – David J. Greene

Self-awareness is most important to David. When given the opportunity, he always does something today that makes tomorrow better. Even though he’s written poetry for years, he never thought about sharing it with others until he received some invaluable guidance. When he was told it was truly selfish to keep talents hidden, he took that sage advice and he’s glad he did. Finding purpose in life is his effort to pay it forward.

This is his story.
