Poem: The Lonely Road

The lonely road, the one I most frequently travel.

It is not always great, but for me it has made me the way I am.

The bumps and the curves showed me that sometimes you must adjust to get the goal.

The fog covered nearly everything around, but through it all I kept going.

Time after time I thought maybe I should turn back.

What am I doing here?

This is not for me, and I need to take the road that everyone knew.

Then when you least expect it, but right when you need them.

Joy appears and so does hope of being us.

It was always just me and my road the one that nobody knows.

Then one day it became less lonely someone else was there.

I was not expecting this, but the bumps started to smooth out.

The fog was starting to clear, and my vison was nearly 20/20.

Is this real could this be.

The one that I have hope for are you the one that I needed.

This is it this is me.

The lonely road has saved me, and now I can become we.

It seemed too good to be true, and it was.

The lonely road had played me once again.

Movie Review: Parasite(2019)

I must say when I finally watched this movie, I was quite surprised about how good it was. Parasite must be one the best movies that came out within the last couple of years. I know a lot of people do not like to watch forging movies, and they do not like to read the subtitles, but you get used to it. To be honest you do not even notice them after a while. I must admit that it took me some time to get used to it, but once the movie gets to the second act it picks up. This is a movie you watch if you have time and watch to learn.

The one thing that stood out to me was the storytelling. It was different than almost anything that I have ever seen. This made me want to tell stories like this, something that was different. Bong Joon-ho did a fantastic job with this movie.

Movie Review: The Graduate(1967)

This is a movie that I think would live up to the hype that surrounded it, but it did. The Graduate for is a movie that sneaks up on you about how good it is. This is the second movie directed by Mike Nichols, this is also the second motion picture that he directed. This story you all know, so I do not have to tell you about it. If you are just looking for something to watch that is good with a great story watch this. Also if you look online you will see that there are a ton of studies done about the movie.

Movie Review: Fences(2016)

This was the last movie that I saw in theaters, and I went by myself and was just in awe of what I was seeing. The acting in this movie was some of the best that I have ever seen. Fences is a play by August Wilson about the 1950’s, about a black family. Wilson had set out to write a play about the black experience from every decade in the 20th century. Viola Davis and Denzel Washington gave some of the best performance I have seen that I still watch twice a day. This movie made me want to be an actor. The most important thing about this movie is just the writing and storytelling. If you want to be a writer watch this or read the play. This will give you hope that you can write something like this one day. I did for me.
