Humble The Poet

Life is hard, and the older we get, it only seems to get more complex. We can easily get overwhelmed trying to deal with everything all at once. We look everywhere for solutions to make the journey a bit more bearable; everywhere but within. Sometimes we gain more from letting go. Whether it's old habits, stale mindsets, regrets of the past, or simply the way we view our lives; in order to grow we have to shed the things that are holding us back. UnLearn is collection of writings to remind you of the wisdom you've already acquired, but may have lost under the weight and pressures of daily life. Humble The Poet, aka Kanwer Singh is an elementary school teacher, writer, musician, and creative who's writings are designed to be simple yet stimulating. UnLearn is his literary debut, which aims to motivate and inspire you to explore your own hidden potentials. This book is the perfect primer to clean the slate and allow you fulfillment through life long learning. (From CreateSpace Independent Publishing)

From the book

The journey of my life is no different than the journey of any one else on this planet. There have been brilliant moments and moments that still make me cringe when I think about them. I'm haunted by my past, and worried about my future just as much as anyone else. I'm confident that I'm not the only one going through the peaks and valleys of life. The realization that I'm not alone allows me to understand how normal these things really are. We tend to amplify our problems and sink into a centre-of-the-world mentality, thinking that the entire universe is conspiring against us; it's not.
