Multi-award-winning singer and songwriter, Halsey celebrated the success of her new poetry book on Instagram posting a cute throwback photo of herself and wrote an inspirational message underneath.
Recently, Halsey released a collection of her poetry named “I Would Leave Me If I Could” saying that it was the favorite thing she ever made.
Halsey, who has an artistic side as well as a singer personality, has been working on this poetry book for years. She achieved success and announced on Instagram that she was a New York Times Best Selling Author.
Shocked by this news, the singer shared her dreams of becoming a writer when she was a little girl and thanked all her ages. Taking notes since she was a child, while experiencing the joy of having a dream of a singer, she also emphasized that this art field is not related to external appearance, but to thoughts and feelings.
Halsey expressed that she hoped that anyone who reads her poems will find a piece of themselves, and that she hopes to support them when they are alone and in trouble. She made her followers smile by telling some that although her writing made no sense to them, she hoped they would at least like the cover of the book.
Here’s the caption:
“I woke up to discover that I am a New York Times Best Selling Author. I am kind of in shock. Accolades are sometimes based on weird algorithms and viral hits and luck. But sometimes they are based on a true human connection to the art.
The tiny girl who learned all her life lessons in novels, propped up on her elbows with a flashlight at night, thanks you. The teenager distracted through all her high school classes, writing short stories about great loves and world adventures, thanks you.
The 20 year old huddled over her phone in her notes app, crying silently through a moment of weakness on the 200th airplane that year, thanks you. 26 year old me who has often seen my art populate because of a pretty outfit or a dating rumor, thanks you.
This is faceless. I am not sexy, or loud, or charismatic for this art. I am sad, and frustrated with myself, and trying to decide which memories scald me the least to touch. Or perhaps which ones do the most.
This is for you to find yourself in. I hope in your loneliness or sorrow you find a mirror in here. I hope you find a loving embrace. And if you don’t, I hope you at least think the cover looks pretty cool. Love always, Ash.”
