Jake Larsen’s Filled to the Brim is one of the most relatable and casually wise poetry collections I’ve read in a little bit. His short verses are packed with easily remembered lines. I’ve gathered the top 9 of them for you below.

If nothing's around you'll still have yourself Mistakes are part of growing I write to free my thoughts, instead of keeping them on a leash Face it boldly, and pace your emotion her smile keep me at bay; I recall how it astounds Like clocks ticking to time, we could work together as words in a rhyme the moon grabs hold of my thoughts to shine light upon every what if You been breathing down my neck for too long Too much fire and you'll surely burn

  1. “If nothing’s around, you’ll still have yourself.”
  2. “Mistakes are part of growing. Growth is how we learn.”
  3. “I write to free my thoughts, instead of keeping them on a leash.”
  4. “Face it boldly, and pace your emotion.”
  5. “Her smile keeps me at bay; I recall how it astounds.”
  6. “Like clocks ticking to time, we could work together as words in a rhyme.”
  7. “The moon grabs hold of my thoughts to shine light upon every what if.”
  8. “You’ve been breathing down my neck for too long. Your mark has made my thoughts skeptical and weary. I’ve turned into nothing but fogged glass, imprinted and humbled by your memory. It’s as is your allure has traced my outlook.”

 

These are my favorite Jake Larsen quotes, but he has a ton more memorable lines in his collection. What to find your favorites? You can buy Filled to the Brim here. Reading it would count for #IndieAthon… if you want more recommendations, check out our @genzpub Twitter page.
