A Beautiful Mess

Side Hustle/ Photography

A photo and poetry series. You know those moments when you feel like your life's a mess, everything is just fucked up, you feel lost and have no idea how to get out of this shithole that somehow opened up in your life? This project is inspired by those moments. Throughout my life I have seen women around me go through these phases, always masked through their every day routine, going through life as if everything is alright and they have to constantly convince themselves that they are. So instead of pushing these moments away and burying them, I thought, why not celebrate them? Why don't we celebrate these shit moments and create something beautiful while we're at it? We tend to forget our strengths during these times, and that is what I want to remind these women of through the experience. I want to show them that vulnerability is strength, and that they will come out of the other end stronger than they will ever be.

I am afraid I am afraid of being alone I am afraid of not having anything to cling on to I am afraid Of my thoughts Of my thoughts Of my thoughts The sudden rush of breath The sudden peak in the tempo of my heartbeat I have no control over my body. I am afraid I am afraid of me. The me that someone else have held for the longest time The me that I lost connection with The me that I thought was fine to be left alone Not to be cared, nurtured Or loved. I am still not ready to claim her back But one day, I will.
