‘Change’ is a three-part story about realizing that the person you’ve idolized for so long isn’t actually that great. They’re using you. Through one sentence being said, you think about it and choose to move on.
‘The chance’ is about getting over a breakup. Getting over the hump and being ready to be vulnerable again and putting yourself out there.
‘Outlook’ is pretty self-explanatory. Basically it’s about being in a relationship and thinking about the now and the future. How you’re very happy about things right now, but at the same time vary about what comes next, because you convince yourself it cannot continue this way forever, but can it?
‘Untitled I’ is a piece about sending wrong signals on purpose even though you shouldn’t. How the propper thing to do is what you would like to do, but are unable to. How you get drawn into doing the wrong thing even though it isn’t fair for any party.
People think and act rationally, usually. ‘Choice’ plays around with that thought and wonders what would happen if one didn’t choose the obvious choice, but gave a ‘stupid, short term choice’ a chance. The poem reflects a person’s inner thoughts flying around as they are overthinking the situation, considering every outcome.
‘Brief’ is a short reflection on a relationship that was good even though it didn’t last long as well as the awkwardness that comes afterwards. You spend so much time with that one person only to watch it all disappear.
This picture was taken from one of my walks around Copenhagen. It’s from a silo-building at Islands Brygge. The grandness of the building resembles the expectations I sometimes feel on my shoulders.
‘Guilt’ was written in a moment of self-reflection around the concept of family. How we’re supposed to stick together no matter what people do and how we’re treated. There’s this anger, rage or even resentment being built up, which has to be let go if you want to cherish your family. After all, some of them are not all that bad.
