Forest and plants is a recurring theme in many of my poems. The idea is that everything forms life and that there’s energy in everything. Some things, however, go bad and rotten. Bad relationships for example. ‘Leaves’ is a poem about noticing and trying different things to learn to know yourself and not put yourself in the same situation. Sometimes, leaves can barely hold onto a tree and other times they can survive through a storm.
‘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 chance’ is about getting over a breakup. Getting over the hump and being ready to be vulnerable again and putting yourself out there.
‘Remember’ is a piece about hanging on to someone that doesn’t care as much about you as you do about them. You force yourself to stay because you believe there’s nothing better out there.
‘Snow’ is about a person that makes it seem as if they’re interested in a romantic relationship, but when it comes to it they bail at the last second.
‘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.
‘Endless’ is ironically very short. Go figure.
‘Open’ is about how many live through their phones in todays society. I wrote this in a moment of self-reflection of always being conscious of my phone use and the need to use it.
‘Who’ is the first poem I ever released to the public, but it was far from the first one I wrote. I started writing things down seriously in 2012, but shared this poem during the fall of 2017.
