Quotes from some selections of Michael Tyger's poetry on Wattpad:

"Hear this now and listen well:
A life lived half-hearted is better off dead.
I may be unmeasured, untamed and not swell
but I will leave no stone unturned and no word unsaid."
(from the poem, 'No Stone Unturned' from the book 'The Storyteller')

"Swallow the lightning
in heaven's dream
and reach past storms
and darker things
Wrestle the wind
in the canyons deep
and emerge to take
what we cannot keep"

(from the poem 'What We Cannot Keep' in the wattpad book 'Whispers')

"But it's your Oracle," I protested. "Can't you tell us what the prophecy means?"

Apollo sighed. "You might as well ask an artist to explain his art, or ask a poet to explain his poem. It defeats the purpose. The meaning is only clear through the search."
