My name is Eric and I was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey. Early on in my life I have always had an interest in writing but grew to love it while living in Wilmington, North Carolina. In 2001, I moved to Philadelphia— this is where I developed loyal friendships, a lifelong home, inspiration and true love with my soon to be wife Tracy.

I decided to launch this blog for poetry lovers and those who love to read. Through my writings, I want to give my viewers a piece of me. The writings you find in these blogs will be thought-provoking, humorous, relatable, pragmatic, encouraging and inspiring.

In addition to my poetry, my blog will include a forum called Thoughts of a Spicer. This is where I will write everyday thoughts that I have that others may consider relatable. With each post, I hope to gain your attention and give you more insight into who I am as a person.

Please take a moment to read my thoughts— and please share. You never know who may need words of encouragement, inspirational thought or just a moment to step away from their reality.
