Letters to Stories: Behind “Invisible” and “Re: Invisible”

What are my poems if they weren’t inspired by a tragedy in my life? These two poems I’ll be writing about, I decided to put them in one article because they both actually go hand in hand. Invisible and Re: Invisible I originally wrote as one long poem in my notes, and for quite some time I made it stay as one poem. As I kept looking at my account, I decided that a poem should not be that long and I should split it into two, which was very convenient because this poem was about two different people anyway.

Letters to Stories: Behind “Lost With(out) You”

Let’s just say, this summer, when I opened myself up to trying to write poetry, it made me dig deeper into my emotions than I realized. I revisited all the pain that came from all these traumas. That sent me into a downward spiral in terms of my mental state. It made me realize just how much my past is so connected to my present.

Letters to Stories: Behind “Summer Ghost”

Have you ever been friends with someone where you haven’t been friends very long, but you feel like you’ve known them forever even though you met them like six months ago? That type of connection that is so rare, but so deep, and it all happens so fast. Now, have you ever had a friendship like that, and all of a sudden they just drop off the face of the earth, no contact, just complete radio silence? Have you ever had that type of friendship and then all of a sudden they just stop talking to you?

Letters to Stories: Inside “Wish”

Has anyone ever asked you, or have you ever taken one of those Buzzfeed personality type quizzes where the questions were “Do you have any regrets,” and “If you had the power to go back in time, would you change anything?”

Letters to Stories: Inside “Mirror”

The perspectives people have of us vary, and sometimes how one person views us can affect how we see ourselves too. So, do we, as the people who actually have the right to judge ourselves, ever get to see ourselves for who we truly are, or is our own, true, self-image tainted by others?

Leaves fall in autumn, and it’s time for The Olive Branch to shed its own.
Peace can’t exist until everyone in the world is free to live a full and happy life. True peace can’t exist if people are oppressed and living in fear of whether they are going to actually live to see the next sunrise, or even more dire, today’s sunset. The Olive Branch was meant to spread the truths that were found to help bring peace. However, there was always one thing missing.

Letters to Stories: Behind “Escape”

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.
