Rely on these words
of mine:
that I'll arrive
on time
in the afterlife.

    Your poetry style has changed quite a bit. Isn’t it amazing how writing styles can change drastically within a year or two?

    I am curious as to what the firefly represents though, could you explain? I feel like I’m being a bit ignorant here but I can’t help but think I am missing something. I can’t seem to connect the meaning to the poem title or the words in the poem… Normally I see more detailed writing so there’s not much to go off of. I would love it if you could share your intended interpretation with me!

    1. Hello Kayla! I’m so sorry if my reply came so late. I am very busy with my acads and couldn’t bring myself to check on my social media accounts.

      The firefly in this poem is a figurative speech to define a person dear to me. And as for the poem itself, it is a sort of an apology. The fault of not grasping the poem’s essence does not purely lie in your perception. It is a very personal poem that I intended to be purely understood by the person I wrote it for.

      Also, the title “: Undo” can be interpreted as the narrator fixing things again but not in this lifetime. And that in the afterlife, the narrator will once again, “arrive” on time. This means that the narrator will arrive when the other needs them the most.

      I intend to have more conversations with you once the academic year ends.
