Jhene Aiko On Her Brother’s Death
Jhene Aiko said in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, “For me, writing has always been my way of expressing myself and not feeling judged, just getting through difficult times…I feel like when anyone holds anything in, that creates stress and pain disables you.”
‘I definitely have been in really dark moments. I’m an emotional person and very, very sensitive. Sometimes it feels like I can’t even go outside because I’ll literally feel every passing person’s emotions or [I’ll watch] the news [and] I’ll be like, ‘Ok, s***. I’ll really feel it to the point where I feel like I can’t move. And that’s why I write. That’s why I make music. I try to turn it into art.” Below are the poem lines;
i held my breath waiting to see you take another, but you did not, where did you go? do i really have to grow up without you? am I really alive without you? are you in the stars? is there a God? do you walk with him? is he a she? is she in me? will we ever talk again? is it strange that I cant wait to meet my fate, just to see your face, again? Miyagi Ayo Hasani Chilombo, i love you to infinity – your baby sister
