The poems in this appendix journey through the constraints and freedoms surrounding self discovery and aim to distill life down to the crucial moments that have helped shape my own existence. Sensory and concrete details help to create the internal and external settings of my poetry as well as rebuild a world that is either forgotten or was never mine to begin with. Poetry is about transformation and aspires to turn the indefinable into a concrete experience. The poetry found in this thesis explores these transformations by analyzing memory and nostalgia as well as the vigor associated with physical and emotional discovery. "The Importance of Elsewhere" strives to examine the interconnectedness that tethers individual experience to the many facets of humanity.
