“I wrote this poem when I was having a hard day mentally… we all have these days, I definitely had my share… I used to fight, I still do sometimes, you get frustrated, you feel guilty or ashamed for feeling anxious or down… These things in life can be really hard but these hard days make good days really matter… sometimes you better just let go and feel it all… I’m thankful for this ride, every part of it… hang in there 🙂 ”
In the video, birds can be heard chirping as the singer reads his poem “The More I Feel” in voiceover.
“I woke up feeling less than myself
I tried to write all the words but it didn’t help
I walked along the bridge through the commons park
Still hurt held her hold more than I wanted
I tried to escape in every way I could
Then I realized that feeling this way could be good
‘Cause how could I know the feeling of happiness
If life was all smiles and risk-free love
So today I’m gonna soak up all this pain
The more I feel
the more I earn “
