“I feel trapped inside my mind. I drown myself in my thoughts. Though I dream of having wings, I know I can never fly.”

The poetic journey of a young artist who carries the heavy burden of a creative mind. The natural empathy and sensitivity of the artist often come with fear and anxieties, but they’re also what drives him to create.
