Poet, Singer, Songwriter, Rapper, Composer, Music Producer
Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia
My name is Pleant Rovella Kapple. I was born and raised in Kuching. Writing in corporate is my profession but I’m also a poet, songwriter, singer, rapper, composer, and music producer. I began writing songs and poems at the age of 8 – mainly influenced by my father. Although, he’s more of a songwriter. He writes songs in Bidayuh. Most of my poem collections are freestyle and thought-provoking. You can find poems in both English and Malay for all to enjoy and ponder upon. A lot of these poems are based on personal experiences that I need to pen down to keep my sanity. I like to play with vocabulary to create poems that are full of metaphors and emotionally deep. Critical thinkers may even need to read twice when they come across my contrasting ideas. Some of my poems are also relatable, especially to those who have been in a relationship and experienced heartbreak. Overall, my writing style is dark and long, but there are also poems for light reading. In my collection, you will also find poems that touch on life as a whole where I explore different themes like finding yourself, reminiscence, depression, and even politics. I don’t have a favourite poet or poem but I do come across some that I can relate to. I hope to leave the same impact on those who come across mine.
