Moving on after a breakup

Moving on after a breakup

Moving on after a breakup

This right here ‘Moving on after a breakup’ is one of those pieces that you write as therapy. One of those poems that help give you the insight into what you’re feeling and what you’re going through. Might even help you understand the pain and where it comes from and why you are in the situation. Love is tricky, so much so that people make millions writing books about it, movies about it and songs about it.

A relationship is even more complicated because of the mixing of two whole lives. Trying to merge two situations into one and having them sync completely is rare. Due to the fact that people tend to want the situation a certain way. And when they can’t get that situation, when they can’t force the situation to be what they want it to be, often times people step out. Because being in a situation that isn’t beneficial to you isn’t something people want.

The world can be pretty dark while Moving on after a breakup.

It’s coming to terms with reality and accepting the consequences of your actions that’s really hard for most people. That’s why moving on after a breakup is so hard because you have to truly believe that this new reality is the one that is right for you. So many of us just don’t want to embrace the fact that the love you invested so much time and energy into is no more. And the new situation without the love you so wanted is hard.

Moving on after a breakup can be pretty easy though. All you have to do is just find relief in other things. Find distraction in your passion. And if you find that your life is empty without that love … your life needs some work.

If you liked moving on after a breakup, I am sure that you will enjoy the rest of the spoken word pieces on my channel as well. So don’t forget to subscribe and thanks for coming. And keep in mind I have a poetry book available as well. 

Trying to be good

Trying to be good

Trying to be good

The world is a heavy place, it’s a dark place filled with a lot of negativity. And with the birth of the internet, all that darkness has found a safe way to find some light.  The concept of being a troll has given a lot of haters the space to free all their disgust with people who are enjoying life.

But in real life, there are these rules and unwritten laws that society tends to abide by. People often don’t even realize that they are following said rules. Treating women like objects, eating food you know is bad for you. Enjoying the benefits of systemic racism. It’s so very easy to get lost in becoming a part of this bad system.

Trying to be good in a bad world is a hard thing to do.

So you have to wake up from the spell this world puts on you. You have to actually try to break free from being a bad influence on the world. Trying to be good in a bad world is a hard thing. Because it often means that you’re going against the norm. You have to actually try to be good, or else you will never see for yourself how your actions perpetuate a system that is slowly destroying your mind and our world.

Growth is a part of life, but so many times people tend to want to be comfortable rather than growing. They want everything to stay the same, so they don’t have to work on being better. Which to me is a very sad thing, because a sea without waves will rot.

This was a beautiful collab with an amazing poet. I loved the way we came together to give this concept form. If you liked this spoken word poetry collaboration, I am sure you will enjoy the rest of the videos on my Youtube Channel, so don’t forget to subscribe. And keep in mind that I also have a poetry book for sale. Thanks for coming and have a great week.

Hope Vs. Hopeless

Hope Vs. Hopeless

Hope Vs. Hopeless

Love, pain, time, passion, sadness … all of these have this secret red thread that combines them together. And that’s hope because hope is the one thing that humanity has created to ensure they keep going even in the darkest of times. The only issue is that hope is a beautiful thing, but if you lose it, its perceived as a very dangerous thing.

For me, hopelessness is the one thing you need in your mind to keep it clear and logical. Hope vs. hopeless is a fight for the ages. And the ages have shown us that people believe in hope to such a degree they linked it to their deities. Hopelessness is often linked to mythical tormentors. Hope, however, in my opinion, tends to delude people into thinking that the world is a beautiful place that will always work out.

Hope Vs. Hopeless is reality versus fantasy.

Hope vs. hopelessness is in a way a translation of believing in things will work out vs. being logical and or cynical. Protecting yourself from possibilities you don’t want, creating a mental state where outcomes you find undesirable are deemed bad, are all setups where you will get disappointed. And that’s why hope is a dangerous thing, but when you find yourself befriending hopelessness you will understand that the world will fail you. Life will throw changes at you that you don’t like and if you had hope, you will hate those changes.

Hope vs. hopeless was another amazing spoken word poetry collaboration that really pushed my pen to do some amazing work. I loved the concept and execution of this one. If you liked this poem I am sure you will enjoy the rest of my videos on my Youtube Channel so don’t forget to subscribe. And if you are so inclined I also have a poetry book you might like. I have a new one in the works. Thanks for coming and be back for more.

Magic Number

Magic Number

Magic Number

Everyone has a magic number that they tend to keep to themselves. Because they know that people tend to judge based on that exact same magic number. Sex tends to be a complicated thing for some relationships and might become an even bigger issue if other aspects are taken into consideration. I am a firm believer in that the past is nothing more than the past.

Whatever you have done with regards to sex and being intimate with others has no bearing on what is happening right now. Relationships should be based on what happens after the couple first meet. Because that’s when their history starts. That magic number has no added value to the current state of affairs.

Do you know your Magic Number?

Especially since people tend to bring in their view of what their partner should be. Your partner needs to be as “clean” as “wholesome” as “pure” as you. Or your partner shouldn’t have been so “giving” in her or his past.” It’s so very easy to judge someone past on what they did. But a lot of people tend to forget that the past could have been a very different situation from what it is now.

Some people love to be loved, some people just enjoy being a part of something. Some people need some time to find themselves. With all of those that very simple magic number can increase. Because the future doesn’t matter as much, it’s about solving the “now” making the present a bit more pleasant. But some people don’t look at any of that, because they only see a simple number. I wish it was different.

Rush Hour 5

Rush Hour 5

Rush Hour 5

To be clear, I have always liked this movie because of the exact same reasons I stated in this very piece. It takes some time for some people to wake up and actually see what some movies are trying to say. Because movies have this amazing power that a lot of people underestimate. These movies are able to define the reality of some people. They give this image that people cling to as they meet the people represented in the movie.

Rush Hour 5 is dangerous.

They share these fake statistics that linger in the subconscious of the viewers. Stereotypes are enhanced to the point that people take them as fact. Racism is shown as something that should be perceived as comedic instead of painful. And how certain aspects of a culture are just funny if you put it into the “right light”.

And Rush Hour is one heck of a movie that did a LOT of damage to the subconscious of a lot of people. But they, just like me didn’t realize it at the time of viewing. But now that I woke up, I have to call nonsense when I see it. Writing poetry gives you the chance to voice the pain of unspoken racism.

I once again had an amazing poet willing to work with me on another spoken word project. And he actually came up with this idea, and me being who I am, I just loved the concept from the jump. I love it when I get to write something that punches the strings of a reality love to grab ahold of. And that’s what this piece allowed me to do.

If you liked this piece I am sure you will love my poetry book as well. And don’t forget that you should subscribe to my channel to make sure that you get all the latest updates on my channel. Keep being awesome and keep filing away those achievements.

Dream

Dream

Dream

I have written a lot of poems in my life and the way I enjoy doing them is a unique experience. I love telling myself and those who read my words that they have to keep dreaming and keep trying. I need everyone who reads my words to understand that they are in control of their life. They are the key point in making sure their dream becomes reality.

And I once again had the pleasure to do a collaboration spoken word piece with another amazing poet. Dreams are what make life into a thing worth living. Those exact same dreams are what force people to strive for greatness. I love watching people chase their dreams.

Make sure you follows your Dreams.

I always try to play my part in making sure that people achieve their goals. Because when people achieve their goals they get a chance at achieving happiness. And making people happy is a beautiful thing that a lot of people underestimate. I write to write, but I also try to write to inspire, write to give a voice to that feeling lost in the dark.

I often wish that what I wrote would actually reach someone and get them to reach for the stars. Grab a hold of that ever elusive smoke and turn it into a reality. Never think that your dreams are out of reach or beyond your abilities. Keep dreaming and keep trying and if anyone has the gall to tell you differently, tell them I said “I believe in you.”

What writer's block feels like

What writer’s block feels like

What writer’s block feels like

Have you ever been dropped in a very dark place where the only thing you could do is look into the distance at the things you want? Where your very desire is being mocked by your inability to reach the horizon. Each little frame has its own shadow that gently caresses the hopes that you will soon reach it.

What writer’s block feels like is a poem that I’ve been wanting to write for a while now. And the reason why it was so easy to write is that I’ve never really had that issue. I’ve luckily never had the pain of being unable to write. Being unable to pen what is going on in my mind.

What writer’s block feels like is a scary feeling.

The words that dance right in front of me but never invite me to join them. Those sad whispers my mind will always refuse to turn into screams, screams loud enough to be transformed into ink. That is What writer’s block feels like.

Writers pride themselves on the joy of being able to create and turn emotions into words that others can relate to. Others can love and enjoy those words because they get to understand that they are not alone in this world. Feeling like someone understands your pain, understands your fears, your needs is something extremely rare.

You need to give yourself permission to be ok with being unable to be perfect. Once you do that, you will slowly get to understand that writer’s block is nothing more than a myth.

I hope that you enjoyed this spoken word poem What writers block feels like and if you did, I am sure that will enjoy the rest of the videos on my channel as well.

What writing feels like

What writing feels like

What writing feels like

Being a poet is worthwhile for a countless collection of reasons. Being a writer is beautiful due to the fact that you can create worlds by simply combining words. I have the luck of being both and I can tell you, its one heck of a thing.

But being a writer and poet can also be extremely scary. Writing by itself can be pretty daunting and that’s why it scares most people into not even trying. I tried my best as a poet to create a poem that accurately describes what writing feels like. I had to add a little bit of drama to make it come across, but all in all, its pretty much on point if you ask me.

What writing feels like is a hard thing to describe.

I have had the great fortune of being around writers for a long time, and all of these writers have the same mentality when it comes to writing. Its addictive and you kind of want to keep doing it. For me writing is therapy, it helps relieve all the bad stuff in my mind. That’s why for me it’s all about reaching into the darkness and bringing out what I find.

Jumping into hell and finding the proper way to navigate to the words I’m looking for. It’s a scary thing but necessary for me to maintain my sanity. And since it’s like that for me, I am making the assumption it’s the same for some others as well.

What does it feel like for you to write? Is it all about the technical aspects of it all, or is it more about the healing effect it might have on you?

Relationship agreement

Relationship agreement

Relationship agreement

I am a huge fan of the Big Bang Theory and as such, there is no way that I could just get by without creating a relationship agreement. That mysterious yet beautiful concept would make the almost perfect addition to any relationship. Because if you can find all the possible pitfalls, and put how to avoid them on paper you might be able to avoid a lot of issues.

I tried my best to create an official sounding piece of what could be a Relationship agreement. Wrote the 5 things that usually come up during a relationship and tried to create some advice sounding words in there to spice it up. Like any real poet would try to do.

Love is a complicated concept because of all the emotions running amock. But if you could navigate those emotions into a productive conversation that would be for the best, wouldn’t it? And that conversation could be guided into the proper direction by using some smart planning and forward thinking.

Sheldon might have been onto something with this one. I myself have been through a few relationships and I saw the issues repeat themselves with each new one. But I got told that your advice is only valid if you yourself are in a relationship. Which to make is the biggest BS I have ever heard. But that is why if this contract was real, and kept being rewritten and corrected over time, it could just be the best thing EVER. Because you can finally skip the need for advice from others, and those pesky “friends” who know better.

Yes, this Relationship agreement is without a doubt a smart thing to do. If you liked this piece, I am sure you will enjoy the rest of the videos on my channel as well so don’t forget to subscribe. And don’t forget my book, which you can buy right here.

Imagine what if

Imagine what if

Imagine what if

So from time to time, I get the chance to work with these amazing poets and create some stunning stuff. This is another amazing piece I did with a great writer. The concept we wanted to work on was “hypotheticals”. The beautiful part of this piece is the fact that writing it was really easy because all we had to do was pool our inspiration from reality.

For my part, I tried to think of the best possible situation for not just me, but for the world in general. I wasn’t able to include everything I wanted, because there are still some aspects of society I left out. But I am more than content with what I wrote and said here.

The issue with being a part of this society is that you get to see all the cracks in it if you look closely enough. The big problem is that most people don’t want to look at the cracks, they just want to look at the greatness of the reality they created for themselves. For writers like me its fun to dream about a world where a lot of humanity’s mistakes were never made and you can just Imagine what if.

Creating a world where the consequences of others actions weren’t so impactful on the world as a whole. That is what this piece was meant to convey. Writing about the injustice in the world, the racism, the hatred, the pain, the agony, the depression … it can get a little heavy at times. So that’s why it’s nice to step away from it all and write about a place where all of that didn’t happen.

If you liked this spoken word poem called “Imagine what if” I am more than sure that you will enjoy all those other videos on my channel as well. And don’t forget that I have a book out as well, in case you want to read some of my old poetry.
