“Somewhere Else” — YouTube Video!


Hey everyone!!!

I’ve recently uploaded a new video on my YouTube channel!!! Earlier this summer, I got the chance to perform my piece, “Somewhere Else” at the Bowery Poetry Club, in New York, NY. I was lucky to get somebody to record me while performing. So here I am, sharing the video with you all!

Context on the Poem: I wrote this poem on the reality of drugs and alcohol in the lives of young adults and teenagers. This poem also talks about the idea of feeling “lost”–not having your heart in something or somewhere specific. Feeling like you don’t belong and aren’t accepted–sometimes, not even in your own home. That, of course, is a journey that I’ve walked through, myself. It was a moment in my life that I thought I could never get out of to the point where I accepted it, and made it my lifestyle. They do say, “if you can’t beat em, you might as well join em”. So that was the quote that drove my life for that time period. The older generation could never understand, but living in today’s world is tough. Well, it’s all I know, so I can’t really tell you how tough it is as compared to previous generations, but what I do know is that people have turned to drugs, liquor and other unhealthy stuff, and sex, to cope with their mental health. So I’m trying to do something about it.

Please watch the video and comment what you think! It would seriously help me with my work. Additionally, please share this video with people. I am sure you know somebody who would benefit from hearing me speak on that topic! Besides that, PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL.
