It’s so satisfying to hit the wall
As hard as you can
Feel the pain
Nothing to lose, nothing to gain
‘Wall’ is about being in a self-destructive mood where everything feels pointless. You know nothing good can come out of punching a wall, but at the same time you’re so down that you don’t see what bad it could cause to get your emotions out.
Physical pain can usually be cured by a pill
psychological only by sheer will
Give it time
There is no quick fix
your mind is playing tricks
Acknowledge the situation
Know yourself and your mind
only then will you find
‘Mindtricks’ is a piece about depression and psychological illness. A societal view is often rooted in a solution-based idea that everything needs to be fixed as fast as possible and as easily as possible. The problem is psychological issues are hard to deal with and they take time.
We’re on this dance floor together
But It hurts so much
That I’ll never get to feel your touch
‘Dance floor’ is about longing for a specific person.
My eyes hear you,
when you’re not there…
to show me the way.
I want you to be okay.
‘Sound’ is about noticing how others feel if they’re not able to share their emotions by themselves.
Remember to cry
In order to smile
‘Emotions’ is a short statement following the previous poem ‘Feelings’. It’s a piece about the perception that ignoring your emotions is healthier than being emotional all the time because being sad can be viewed as unnecessary and often ignored especially in today’s social media world.
Having feelings isn’t a sign of weakness
‘Feelings’ is a short statement. A piece about the perception that having or showing emotions is a sign of weakness. In today’s social media world we teach our kids to only show the good parts of life and ignore the bad ones. This results in feelings bottling up inside until they explode, which isn’t a healthy behavior.
Sometimes I feel like
these thoughts come back
through various states and moods
Emotionally I feel strong and mature
still I wonder
If I’m only comfortable in negative times
and in positives I flounder
you grab my hand and hold on tight
instead of appreciating the gesture
I solely consider my potential fright
How can we know
what’s potential and what’s true anymore
if we cannot move ahead
because we’re afraid of not holding the door
‘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.
because I don’t believe
in my own ability to re-energize
before seeing myself finish
get away to replenish
small details no one wonders
allocated to mountains
trying to understand
who’s going to hold my hand
closing my eyes
shutting off, out
‘Out’ is about getting in that mood. It’s about being hit with anxiety. It’s about feeling like you want to give up. It’s also about noticing it and wanting to restart.
Chasing a hollow boat
while being on dry land
buying a rain coat
a dangerous contraband
My arms and legs burn
but not my face, it’s cool
maybe you want me to learn
not to drool
Being a coaster
silently cut from the roster
without any doubt
‘Coaster’ is about chasing the wrong person.
