Poetry is an expression of the soul.
This holds true not only for the poet himself but also for the reader. Sometimes, we find something valuable, something relatable in places we least expect them to; and for us, that place is poetry.

A lot of what happened in the past 2 years has been overwhelming and all too new, but overall they have been learning experiences.

Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to say something, but didn’t dare speak up for fear of confrontation? Well, then this poem is a must-read for you.

A serene beach. A lovely house. But the late-night parties and reverberating loud music disturbs the peace and calm of the tranquil waters. Read as our protagonist gets trapped into the throes of a life he didn’t want to live, with over-the-top people and foreign substances, and witness his journey – right from the downfall to his metaphorical rebirth.
