Hiding

Janzajma poetry happiness

‘Hiding’ is about our exterior not fitting with our inner-selves. In the past I’ve struggled with being happy and energetic all the time out in public and then being all out worn out. The struggle is to find a balance and communicate with the close ones around you and take the time to manage your mental well-being.

The gray between the black and white

Janzajma poetry bipolar

‘The gray between the black and white’ was a piece I wrote during a time where I had extreme mood swings. I could go from having the best time with my friends to being completely down and depressed in a blink of an eye. For a long time I couldn’t figure out what caused these ‘demons’, as I liked to call them, to come out. After a great amount of self-reflection they don’t come out as often and when they do I’ve become much better at handling it. Accepting that you have issues is important and talking to your friends about it helps as well.
