Dave Made A Maze

Dave Made A Maze

Last week, I watched the movie “Dave Made a Maze”. And Loved It. (Capitalization added for greater effect) Nowadays, movies have a hard time being original. It’s tough to find anything worth watching that isn’t a remake or a sequel. (That’s my humble opinion, please don’t hurt me) But not this movie. “Dave Made a Maze” is a breath of fresh air. Its creativity and uniqueness are captivating while its commitment to its own absurdity is flawless. While you can…

Family Weekend

Family Weekend

“We must abolish the fish people!” My family came down to spend the day with me this past weekend. Saturday consisted of celebrations, catching up, and plenty of laughter; all of the things that usually happen with my family. I have to say that it was much needed. In the few weeks of being back at school, I have already fallen into a monotonous routine of class and time at home. For me, routine is extremely helpful with getting outside…

The Maze Within: A Poem

The Maze Within: A Poem

The maze within The poor boy’s head, No time to sleep, Can’t find a bed Two lefts, a right, Straight through another door, Spinning round and round An endless tour Help me, help me His shouts and pleas, A shroud of darkness Meet his fallen knees Begging for silence Searching for hope All while mustering The courage to cope Constantly looking To make his pain known, The poor, lost boy Thinks he’s all alone

Rough Draft

Rough Draft

What is my purpose here? Why am I alive today? Is it to work in an office for the rest of my life? Is it to conform to society’s standards? Why does my life have to fit everyone else’s? Why do I compare myself to everyone else? I don’t want my life to be the same. I want my life to be different. I want my life to be unique. I want my life to mean something. I want my…

A Decision

A Decision

Lately, my mind has been overwhelmed with confusion. Two paths lie in front of me and I don’t know which path to take. Both have challenging obstacles blocking the road ahead. It doesn’t feel like any outcome is favorable, yet I have to choose because the pain of staying silent is becoming too much. My head space has been flooded, my concentration shattered, my heart divided, my sanity ruptured, my future called into question…and all I want to do is…

A Loss

A Loss

Music in and heads down Everybody’s fighting to wear the crown Only smiles on his face No sign of a frown Searching to find Someone else of his kind While slowly drowning Inside his own mind Unaware of the hope Too busy tying the rope Unlucky for him Never learned how to cope Now it’s too late No room for debate We can’t let another Slip through at this rate

Are We So Different?

Are We So Different?

Are we so different? Is my life much different than yours? Do you ever find yourself staring into a screen until the day starts over? Do you ever finish one Netflix show just to move onto another? Do you ever watch YouTube videos until you need to find a charger? Do you ever wonder if life is more than cheap thrills and one night stands? Do you ever desperately want to do something more with your life? Do you ever…

Batman Begins

Batman Begins

And so it begins: senior year. The past few weeks have been hectic due to summer coming to a close and school getting ready to start up. My mind has been preoccupied with an endless amount of thoughts and emotions. It has honestly been a torrential downpour of mixed feelings. On one hand, I am always looking forward to being back in school so I can reconnect with friends and add more structure to my life. On the other, the…

The Open Road

The Open Road

My hands on the wheel grip tighter. My foot slowly pushes down on the gas. My eyes track the speedometer as it rises. 20, 30, 40. The moonlight illuminates the open road as rows of corn pass by. Dark thoughts begin to fill my head. What is the point of moving forward? What does tomorrow have to offer me? Why is the pain becoming unbearable? My foot continues to press down. 50, 60, 70. Why am I hurting so much?…

Help Me Trust: A Poem

Help Me Trust: A Poem

I fall Lost and alone Searching for my home Drifting further away From the noise everyday I see Light shining down But blocked by the sound Hidden from the heart And present from the start I know Watching over me Still drifting at sea Unsure of what to do Unsure of how to move I cry Darkness closing in Wrapped up in the sin Treading to fall Too heavy to crawl I pray Please help me escape This prison when…
