My expression of insanity, emotions and love. Love it or hate it, I don't really care. I do it for expression.

I don't write poetry.
I just let the pen 
Dance
Across crumbled pages.
I let my soul
Bleed into ink.
As my way of asking
Statues and glowing
Screens
For answers
But They never answer.
EPIK HIGH's new song is really dope:

                You and I are very rare.
                
 Third generation Asian-Canadians makes up less than 1% of the total population. From an early age we learned to wear three masks like Nezha. I am Canadian. Je suis Canadien. 我是加拿大人。
                
The grass gives off a crimson light on either side and I’ve been trying to stay safe in the the sidewalk between them but I’m at the edge. Or maybe I’ve already fallen off and I’m just a being of nothing nothingness. I’ve already gotten accustomed to being in nothingness. Been reading Descartes and Kierkegaard and I can’t fathom the mathematics behind happiness.
                 
Two fugitives ran away from home and conceived a daughter that gave birth to me; that’ll give birth to you. Both our parents raised outside communist states. I was never good at keeping up with our Diasporic community so now these dudes tell us our native tongue is dope but not in the cool way. I wish I was dope so I could have more. So this obsession makes sense. So that my high can feel better than this.  What’s that sound? I think it’s my heart exhaling, that, or my cerebrum hyper ventilating. Doesn’t matter. Either/Or.                                        

But I don’t need substance; I’ll meditate instead and write to you like you were my therapist.
                

Fuck it, I’ll hang out in the streets of China Town alone, drink bubble tea and try to fit in.
                

But nah, fuck it. I’ll go back to eating pizza with chopsticks.

Open Letter
An open letter to someone who doesn't exist.

I feel like I've been making a lot of racially charged pieces lately. But I guess that's also been the epitome of my existance. A lot of my problems stem from feeling outcasted or like a black sheep.

What this is NOT saying:

-Any party is racist. That's not the case. For the most part.
-Anyone is to blame. I blame no one.
-I hate who I am as a whole. I love myself, I'm an sexy ass motherfucker.

All I'm saying is that I feel a little out of a place being I'm kind of in a subgroup of a racial minority.

PS. Some fun facts:

-I taking a Mandarin class in school, which why I can even write "我是加拿大人" and not sound like a dumbass. I never went to Chinese school growing up. My grandparents mainly speak Contonese so I'm still screwed.
-I really did eat pizza with chopsticks before. Also french fries.
-I use the word dope to have multiple cannotations. As points I'm refering to the color of cocaine, at points I use it as a metaphor for feeling good and I also use it to mean "cool", as in being accepted.
-Kierkegaard is more metaphorical than logical/mathematical when making philosophical statements, but I included him in this piece anyway, I have no idea why.

Thank you for breathing.

You're worth it.
I Swallowed
The key
That keeps me locked
In this cage.

I think
They feel
Comfort
In knowing
I'll starve here.
Caged
This could mean a lot of things depending how you want to look at it. Depending on what you want the cage and "they" to be.

So recently, I did a cover/remix of the WINNER song 'Empty', I really loved the beat, so I decided to rap over it. You can listen/watch it here:



I had loads of fun making a a completely new concept for this song. It was inspired by an incident that happened to a friend of mine last week when we went out to a bar.

I'm not claiming to be anything except myself. View my work; learn a little bit about me. I'm just like you, I'm searching for answers.

I write. I sing. I rap. I produce. I live.

Ha, then you'll be utterly disappointed since I don't only do poetry and I don't only do short poetry. :p Though that's kind of my standard right now with school conflicting with my art submission schedule (which is twice a weak).

It'd be nice to start writing comedy sketch scripts and music again though. probably in December.

hello there, i listened to the song, and hey, it´s not bad, it´s smooth, and it fills the ears like a professional

i´m unable to do anything musical, i´m a mere listener. But i think you´re going in the right direction.  Keep it up!
