Hello everyone, I meant to write a more profound blog post but I decided to write some short series of poetry consisting of four lines because it’s easier and more fun to write lol. It’s quite a challenge to write everything you wanted to say with just four lines. I enjoyed writing these at the same time it shows what’s currently in my mind these days.
Emotions that you keep so much inside that nobody else knows about. People who carelessly throw mean words will come back to them and haunt them. The feeling of emptiness that you try to fill up with senseless and sometimes harmful stuff will never be enough. Finding your true desire besides working in an 8 hour job. And not wanting the things that society tells us to have.
These are five stories that I tried to sum up with 4 lines.
Overflowing emotions and feelings.
I’m spilling drops barely keeping it in,
created a puddle I’m trying to clean
others might slip but it was never seen.
“PEOPLE WILL REMEMBER HOW YOU SPEAK TO THEM”
You are spitting acid all over,
burning others even with covers.
Now, you’re dripping blood.
Hear their voices— they’re glad.
“FOOD WILL NOT FILL YOU UP”
Stuff yourself with everything in your fridge
but you’ll never fill up the void inside of you
when your mind’s thoughts are in a cage
and when your heart’s color is just blue.
“IT’S WHAT YOU DO AFTER 5PM THAT MATTERS”
Exerting efforts to someone else’s goals
but feels exhausted to work on yours.
It’s the things you do after eight hours,
there you’ll find the true desire of your soul.
“IT’S OKAY TO NOT WANT ‘NORMAL’ THINGS”
People keep telling you to do things;
get a job, find someone, have kids
but do you really want to have these
or the society pressures you to do it?
