Have a voice to create sound
Channelling through chords, kick-start equalizer, Mixer hears a tone,
But the vibrating heartbeat pounds;
Unlike hounds, scents are smelt miles away but do not signal the sound
Auto-focus locked on, no sound effects being a call upon
Confidence to the max, hand motion swings like axes, Hurricane, Tornado, a wild raging wave
Movie star facial expressions, flexible, smooth and hardly-age
Delayed messages converted to non-sense sentences
Bewildered, lost of deliverance
Mischievous thoughts portrayed then instantly labelled menaces.

Llewellyn McDonald is a Deaf coloured male originally from Kwa-Zulu Natal. He was born and raised in Sleepy Hallow (Pietermaritzburg) and attended a Deaf school, Fulton School For The Deaf, from 1990 – 2002. He also has a Deaf sister who also went to the same school. While growing up, Llewellyn had a passion for music. He would put his hearing aid louder to get the rhythm and imitate the drums in the songs, and he would daydream about mixing songs on turntables. As a teenager, Llewellyn started focusing on dancing and lead a dance crew with hearing people. After school, he became a local DJ in the Western Cape, represented South Africa for DJing for the World Federation Of The Deaf in Durban. While DJing, he got involved with a play by creating music and playwriting. He would sometimes write songs or poems in his own time.
