‘The road ahead’ is about feeling ready to be very intimate with someone and them wanting to take it slow. It’s a slightly aggressive piece reflecting the inner feelings of longing for the other person.
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.
The best tool for survival
is knowing yourself
strengths and limitations
The worst idea is to
seeing only a single way
when a pair is there to stay
increasing weight on your shoulders
pick up the pen
acknowledge your time in the den
and move on
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.
