Broken Warrior
Start writing a post

They ask me to keep rising.

They ask me to keep running.

They ask me to keep fighting.

Inside, I am breaking.

Inside, I am falling apart.

Inside, I have pushed myself to my limit.

Inside, I keep pushing myself past my limit.

I no longer have the strength to hold it all together anymore.

Inside, I am hoping the glue is strong enough to hold it all together.

I am not as strong as I seem.

I am not as invincible as I look.

I may look like superwoman.

Instead, I am just a warrior who refuses to give up.

Instead, I am a warrior who refuses to quit.

I am a warrior who doesn't know how to quit.

I am a warrior who only knows how to put one foot in front of the other.

I am hoping that with each step, it won't be the one to shatter me.

I am a warrior who wears a mask.

I am a warrior who puts on a facade in fear of letting people see the real me.

The real me is weak pretending to be strong.

The real me is broken, who pretends to be a warrior.

Every time I smile, I give the illusion I am ok.

Sometimes, it just easier to smile than to tell everyone what is wrong.

Sometimes, my smile is just the glue holding all my shattered pieces.

Sometimes, I break when I receive a gentle touch from someone who cares.

I am not who I pretend to be.

I am a broken warrior.

As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
