“Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.” - G. K. Chesterton
My name is Kristjan, I am 18-years-old and I am sick of life being painted in dull colors. I want to see your eyes glistening while looking at the stars. I want to hear your heart beating when you talk about your most wonderful thoughts and I want you to be sad whenever you need to be sad because that's okay. I know it all seems strange, but you don't certainly have to feel that way.
Depression lives amongst us and I feel like I want to be your inner painter, who shows you the spectrum and introduces you to all the colors that exist in this wide-wide world.

Sure, I could ask you if you've ever felt like a plastic bag drifting through the wind, but I would just be quoting Katy Perry. But she is indeed correct - I want you to feel like a firework that lights up the sky whenever it's shot into the air. I want every single one of you to have that one moment, where you are in a room full of people and you fill the entire room because you're worth it.
Why am I talking this jibberish, you might ask? I am being sincere about my feelings and you too shouldn't be afraid to let your colors soar through the canvas. You may say that you are not a good painter or you never have enough colors, but I will show you how to use your colors in a way that makes you feel like a picturesque pony flying through the sky.

I am here to take you on an emotional journey through the eyes of a teenage boy, who is often too scared about speaking up in class or expressing his emotions to people he doesn't know. I am trying, there are people, who know, but sometimes it's not enough. I like to believe that if I spoke from my heart, everyone would understand me and feel with me. And that is the reason why I write poetry.

Oh, I almost forgot! In case you have never met any of my expressions of feelings, here's one I love a lot:
I said to you, feeling as loved as ever.
You jumped on the bed like cold air
and just sat there, your face all clever.
she had never looked more fascinating.
Of course, I did, her feelings fit me like a glove
I did not need any more debating.
that she had struggled to wear all day.
And I would have never have guessed,
how her hair elegantly swayed.
I was ready to be married to her.
I had never seen such dazzling sparks,
and because of that we will continue our future together,
as it were.
