Wall

It’s so satisfying to hit the wall
As hard as you can
Feel the pain
Nothing to lose, nothing to gain

Author’s note:

‘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.

Mindtricks

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
Peace

Author’s note:

‘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.

Emotions

Remember to cry
In order to smile

Author’s note:

‘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.

Feelings

Having feelings isn’t a sign of weakness

Author’s note:

‘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.

Let go

Sometimes I feel like
Damaged goods
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

Reaching out
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

Author’s note:

‘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.

Signature White

Acceptance

How or why
do you think and try
do I need to cry
to stay safe when I fly

Where and when
do we get on ten
get out of the wolf’s den
and find our zen

What or who
knows it too
what it’s like to be blue
and seeking something true

Which
comes after your twitch
a much needed stitch
finally a road to go; a bad habit to switch

Author’s note:

‘Acceptance’ is an abstract poem touching on anxiety.

Signature White

Social

Noticed by the owls
smart, fancy individuals
celebrating victory
hiding my hollow visuals

Bricks piling
this is Denmark
lightbulb imploding
everything returns to dark

The only way forward
is to go backwards to old ways
realize feelings disperse and avenge;
show up after many fine days

Author’s note:

‘Social’ is about having anxiety in any form. Whether its present all the time as a sort of demon hanging over your life or it presents itself through an anxiety attack. It’s about struggling to make sense.

Signature White

Everything

Having everything
is dangerous
because the more you have going your way
the more can be taken away

It scares me
to have more and more
even though with awe I look ahead
I’m vary of becoming stuck to my bed

It’s weird
suddenly being in control
but the odds of fucking it up
increase with every shared cup

I’d rather
have had you and lose you again
that void of missing our fit
no way to prepare for it

Author’s note:

‘Everything’ is a counter-piece to the recently released ‘Nothing’ poem. It takes on the opposite thought-process of having it all and worrying about losing everything.
