‘Feelings’ is a short statement. A piece about the perception that having or showing emotions is a sign of weakness.

This results in feelings bottling up inside until they explode, which isn’t a healthy behavior.
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.
‘Limitations’ is about doubt and stopping yourself from potentially good things.
‘Let go’ is a piece that reflects an instrumental tune I made of a same theme. The tune is recurring and resembles one’s state of mind.
