‘Night’ is about enjoying the beauty in front of you. Sometimes we can have periods in our lives, where we sort of drift by and stop enjoying the little things.
‘Ethics’ is about taking a breather every now and again and consider whether what you are doing is ethically correct and follows the moral high ground that you expect yourself to live up to.
‘Symmetrical’ is about falling into toxic relationships instead of getting out in time and enjoying what is symmetrical. Not boring, but calm and it fits exactly what you need.
Have you ever ridden your bike and seen a car, bus or tram pass you by and you started going as fast as you could trying to catch up to it, even though it does not help you at all? ‘Chasing’ is about all that. About always following what you think you want like a sheep instead of realizing what’s in front of you.
When you’re weak, you can only get stronger. The poem ‘Strong’ is about thoughts wandering off back and forth thinking if one should get in touch with an old flame. Would doing so be something both of you actually want or is it just a confidence boost? Will you regret it?
‘Weak’ is about being stuck, not having moved on, and feeling weak because of it. You’re drawn to contact your old flame, but as soon as you do, the split second after you press send, you’re filled with regret. This ping-pong goes back and forth a few times until enough time has passed and you become strong.
This is the last part of a three-part poem series called ‘Change’. It’s post-breakup where you’re thinking back and no longer worrying if you made the right choice. You’re finally fine and have accepted that the two of you weren’t a match. It’s time for change.
‘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.
In Denmark we have this belief that one should be humble all the time and never gloat. While for some this argument might be valid as the world does not revolve around that one person, but at the same time it can hurt our confidence because we don’t believe what we do matters. It’s important to be humble, no doubt about that. At the same time it’s important to take a step back and acknowledge the success that one has had and be proud of it.
