Lots of people have been reaching out asking if I’m okay because of the content of my poems. I appreciate everyone’s concern so much—thank you. I am fine! I have just been deeply driven to evoke emotions with my words; these words do not reflect some internal struggle (although I am a firm believer in the power of internal struggle).
I asked a friend to come up with a sentence of inspiration for me. The sentence could carry as much emotional weight as my friend wanted. It could be happy, sad, excited, mundane—anything. The sentence below is what my friend came up with. And below that is what I did with it. Enjoy!
“I’d like to think I’m okay but I know I’m not.”
