Que tal mis amigos!
This is a card to share some poems of fellow Kpop fans. Before I shared some fan paintings and drawings. Art is so cool and the a way to express many feelings. As a poet myself I know of the power that can tranfer from the mind, through the pen, and onto paper.
None of these images or poems belong to KpopINT

Let's get into these poems.
From the start they all said it was a waste of time They said I was frying brain cells in the plasma of another world They said the nonsense I spoke would translate to nothing They said my wild, crazy choreography would lead nowhere They said my foreign singing would never be heard Just because it was different it was useless My new obsession was never understood, never fathomable to manifest into anything remotely comparable to my academic counterparts Test scores, essays, homework were normal, safe, reliable They said stick with what you know, yet I drove into the unknown void It engulfed me wherever I went pushing me to think off my continent, work harder, be better But they said it was a waste of time It provided a home more loving and supportive than ‘friendships’ they said I should want But they said it was nothing special It got me a spot on my college application making me ‘unique’ and ‘diverse’ something desirable But they said it wasn’t normal This glorious world of life, song, passion took me further than anything they had to offer me But they said not to waste my breath This street of unfamiliar self esteem and beauty gave me back confidence that had been devoured by high school tyrants and valedictorians But they said not to give it a second glance This magnificent place of utter joy and amity took me out of the depths of caged thoughts of conventional academia and showed me what true happiness is And they said it was useless
Wait for Me
I am stubborn and unique I wonder how South Korea is like I hear music I want to eat ice cream I am funny and random I pretend that I am at a concert I feel the vibration of people's cheering I touch my idols hand I worry of nothing I cry for the happiness that I feel I am stubborn and unique I understand that rice makes people smarter I say keep calm and eat your kimchi I dream of going to South Korea I try my best to learn Korean I hope i accomplish my dreams I am stubborn and unique
