Dreams, Take My Hand
Start writing a post

Hey readers! This week, I placed focus on feeling uneasy or regretful in forgetting a goal. Truly, it can be a challenge to place a dream you've had for awhile in motion. I can attest, that these last few weeks, have been difficult for me to remain motivated. I tried my best to showcase these feelings into this personification poem; maybe someone can relate to this for themselves. We will all go through different phases of discovering ways to achieve any goals that are important to us. However, always remember: never forget dreams even in the storm. As elementary as this may sound, it indeed, is true: your aspirations are uniquely 'you.' Take this with you and allow inspiration to follow. Much love to you all!

The rain keeps falling,

Tears from the sky

In a moment like a flash of lightening

The air became less dry

It continued to seep into the ground

Making it muddy, almost like quicksand

Take my hand, Dreams, take my hand

Remind me of yesteryear

Allow the day to be filled with dreaming

When I was younger and more determined

Lately, I've been reminded of being passionate

I can feel the sense of joy just thinking of

Achieving past what I limited myself to

The clouds of the current storm began to roil

As if I was still missing something in mind

Thunder crashed and agreed for me to never forget

Dreams, take my hand, take my hand

Walking down the memories in my head

Of what I knew I could be instead

Sleepless, I tossed and turned

As the wind whistled like a warning

I knew it before the morning:

Dreams cannot be forgotten

They are not my regret

Dreams, take my hand, take my hand

So, I can never forget

I can never pretend

My dreams ever left, the rain now gone

I do, truly, feel best

To know that when the rain leaves

What matters to me creates the seams

To the definition of 'me'

Dreams, keep me close

Dreams, keep me safe

Dreams, take my hand, take my hand

They remain with me

Forever again

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


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.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

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?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
