Expiration date

Janzajma poetry love

‘Expiration date’ is about realizing that everything has an end no matter how much we fight for it. That realization can make you see that some things are not worth the fight if the return on investment is low.

Leaves

Janzajma poetry break-up

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.

Cactus

Janzajma poetry abstract

‘Cactus’ is a theme I’ve touched in songs for many years. The idea of being a cactus is based on being all alone in the middle of nowhere with pointy ends pushing anything that comes close away. In ‘Cactus’, flowers get close to the cactus and are not afraid of getting close to it. This creates huge confusion, the cactus not needing much water, which sparks the latter idea that rice does not need water if someone can get close to the cactus. Anything is possible.
