Little reminders that you're NEVER alone.
I’m a person of too much thought. A wanderer — physically, mentally, and emotionally. Sometimes I find myself feeling trapped in a situation I had no intention of getting in, but when that happens I have to deal with it the best way I can.
My way is through reading poems and literature that speaks to me on a personal level. Things I can read that speak for me when I can't come up with words myself. R.M Drake's work has that special touch that not only I look for, but also his 1.6 million followers on Instagram.
His words on life, love and everything else in between are filled with emotions that everyone can relate to. His poems are like the fountain of youth — keeping our emotions alive and reminding us that we are not alone.
One of my favorite, most relatable poems of his is this:
“When I was with people I would doze off and look at the sky, and when I was alone I would think about people. I was never in both places at one time. Maybe I was crazy or maybe I was like everyone else. I wasn’t happy in my own reality, I wanted more.”
I feel it — what he wrote — I breathe it. And so can you.
If you ever find yourself lost for words because you’re heartbroken, upset, angry, or maybe just feel alone, read through some of his writings and you might find something that you too can latch on to for comfort. Because in truth, heartfelt poems know our emotions better than we do.
