Am I still original if most of my poems are inspired by songs I’ve heard? I certainly hope so. Worry not readers, this time, this poem, “Escape” was not inspired by a Gabbie Hanna single. Actually, it was inspired by the music producer who produced her first ever single — Out Loud — Bruce Weigner. Weigner is not just a music producer, but a song-writer and a singer as well. One of his debut solo singles, “I Don’t Know (IDK)” actually inspired this poem.
Encore was an interesting poem to write. First, the title sprung up because I was on another one of my “listen to Gabbie Hanna 24/7” kicks and I found myself listening to Honestly (Encore) over and over again. Then, my mind honed in on the word “Encore,” and I was tossing around ideas because I thought it would be fun to write a poem called “Encore.”
This poem has to be the most personal yet. However, the title drew from many inspirations. The first inspiration is from another of Gabbie Hanna’s songs, “Perfect Day (A True Story)”. The second inspiration drew from the musical Next to Normal and one of the songs found on the soundtrack, “Perfect for You.” These two songs were once found on one of my Spotify playlists, and one day I found myself listening to these two songs, and my mind lingered on the word “perfect.” However, I decided to have the theme of this poem be quite different from those two works.
I hear people are usually skeptical of supplements that claim to enhance the quality of one’s body and brain. People are especially skeptical when it comes to brain boosting supplements. How does it help the brain? What’s inside? What, if any, are the side effects? These suspicions did not let up with the release of Halo Beauty’s new product, the Body and Brain Booster.
