my degree to begin with was practically speaking, a three way partnership. not to say this is an exclusively Asian experience, but entering university, or a level of higher education; is a pivotal moment in the life of any person. i was relentlessly quizzed by my grandparents on my choice of degree, on โ€œwhatโ€ I wanted to be exactly. at 18, you donโ€™t exactly have all of that figured out to say the least. by Asian customs, the conversation around being an engineer or a doctor is an inevitable one, waiting an entire 18 years to be brought up in fact. as someone far from blessed in the STEM department, the arts have always been a first calling for me. itโ€™s not exactly a conventional route for an Asian boy, where youโ€™re made to doubt something youโ€™re yet to begin from the get go. 
despite these initial protests and doubts, what I will never forget is where Iโ€™ve come from. being the grandson of an immigrant pilot, who holds to his name a number of degrees and certifications I can only dream of achievingโ€”I am more than proud and blessed to come from a succession of humble beginnings. however, I view my start as a new chapter. one that can prove itself as worthwhile and successful in its own right. to emerge from a life planned out for you, before youโ€™ve even gotten a grasp of what it means to be alive, is a daunting experienceโ€”but it is something I can claim as my own. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
in a world obsessed with being something, be someone.โ €

first post of 2020! happy new year ๐Ÿฅณ starting off the decade with a pretty solemn piece (that I intended to post 2 weeks ago) but failed to do so ๐Ÿ˜– this poem really speaks for itself - itโ€™s about addressing the mixed signals that occur in any kind of relationship, whether it be platonic, or romantic. feelings and signals are both variable and interchanging, where a lot of insecurities stem from the idea of losing a grasp on something such as love, or a relationship where everything appears to be perfect from the start. the poem begins immersed in a dream, to then awaken into a reality faced with preempt anxieties of somebody losing interest in you, or walking out. โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ โ€ 
sonnets are a common way in painting romantic or love poetry. i intentionally used the foundation of a โ€œmock-petrarchan sonnetโ€ to gradually shatter it with the illusion of the last line, โ€˜deadโ€™ - further emphasising the break-out of that traditional 14-line structure to create something of an โ€œanti-loveโ€ commentary. itโ€™s all in good favour though, at the end of the day I donโ€™t have a clue as to what Iโ€™m talking about ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ.โ €

at an age in which society thrives off of the approval and satisfaction of others - the significance of both self-acceptance and growth become somewhat neglected and set aside. inspired by one of my bestfriendโ€™s (@areyoucyril) instagram posts, once captioned โ€˜make it nice for yourself,โ€™ I often found myself repeating the same statement in my head over and over again totally unprompted. it was often in my times of despair and demotivation that these words would echo internally within my conscience, where the concept of โ€œmaking it nice for yourselfโ€ can start simply in caring for your mental health, to dressing at your best and encouraging your confidence. niceness is both ambiguous and personal, and can be interpreted however you see fit.

everybody is so caught up in a fast-paced society and lifestyle, where I myself began to question the last time I sat down with myself and thought, โ€œam I enjoying this process?โ€ โ€œam I doing this for myself?โ€ these are the most important things to ask yourself, especially at a time where everybody is so set on prioritising the satisfaction and acceptance of others, more than they can foster a feeling of self-satisfaction and harmony in their own existence. *p.s. shoutout to cyril for being one of the biggest inspirations in my life, and for motivating me in wanting to find deeper intellect and meaning in everything I set myself to* ๐Ÿค

my british asian identity has often lead me to awkward encounters and run-ins with more cultured, โ€œfrom-back-homeโ€ relatives, when it comes to practicing traditional Asian customs. whether it be in my mannerisms, to that of my approach to food - being of british asian heritage has ultimately created a divide in what I view as two separate identities. โ €
โ €
this poem is particularly engaged in distinguishing these metaphorical identities, as represented by the dual โ€œcoconutโ€: white on the inside, brown on the out. in an attempt to submerge from this conflict of identity, one could interpret this as a calling to find oneโ€™s true identity and self, beyond the boundaries of colonialism and the whitewashing of a south asian identity in britain. i play on the popular selection game โ€œcoconut crackโ€ to motivate a playful, yet indecisive tone that runs consistently throughout the poem.
