I just emptied out my old phone – it had hundreds of poems and beats just chilling — my desktop is loaded, so I’m currently going through each and every one to see what needs to be edited, deleted, extracted and placed in what current project that I’m working on. Not every poem that I write I feel is great or need to be shown to the public – there are some things that I write just for therapy – dabs I call them, quick outbursts of emotion that I just wanted to get out at that moment. There are poems that I have that I feel will stay hidden away forever or will meet the garbage, but there are lines that I really like — so what I’ll do is extract those lines and build a whole new poem around it. Tedious but worth it.
