‘Emotions’ is a short statement following the previous poem ‘Feelings’. It’s a piece about the perception that ignoring your emotions is healthier than being emotional all the time because being sad can be viewed as unnecessary and often ignored especially in today’s social media world.
‘Feelings’ is a short statement. A piece about the perception that having or showing emotions is a sign of weakness. In today’s social media world we teach our kids to only show the good parts of life and ignore the bad ones. This results in feelings bottling up inside until they explode, which isn’t a healthy behavior.
‘Head-first’ is about letting go of past experiences and learning to move on and tackling your issues head-on.
The poem ‘In-check’ is about learning to get to know yourself, your feelings, your moods, and how you can get yourself out of really bad situations. Wallowing in self-pity only reinforces the bad situation, so realizing that it’s about to occur can help you move on, even if it’s hard.
‘Time II’ is the second piece of a two-part series about time. While the first piece focused on processing past feelings and letting them go, this piece is focused on the future.
The piece, ‘Time’, is about giving yourself time to process things and then letting them go. That feeling of finally being okay is something we all strive for after a breakup.
The poem ‘Basket’ is about understanding your feelings. Sometimes you feel it click, sometimes you don’t. The person might be perfect and you won’t feel anything or the person might be toxic and you feel drawn by them. That’s just how it is.
‘Ready’ is a follow-up piece to ‘Maybe’ about finally feeling ready to meet someone new. This piece, however, focuses on the optimism behind finally being ready. Furthermore, the feelings shown here are of a person being certain that the next person is worth it.
‘Maybe’ is about finally feeling ready to meet someone and how it could go two ways. Either it’s a perfect match or it may not work out. Either way the feeling perceived here is being ready for and accept either scenario.
