Like a Cloud

An original poem written with dreams in mind. Open your perspective to reach your goals!


Hey readers! I wrote this piece to motivate looking at even the smallest things for some motivation for personal goals. Sometimes, we all get caught up in looking at detailed plans over taking a risk. I am not saying don't plan (I feel best when goals are planned!), but don't forget to give yourself the opportunity to take a different approach with things. You never know what more inspiration can be uncovered. As always, go live out your dreams! Much love.

I saw a cloud in the sky,

And I wondered, 'how freely they slide'

The expanse of this one was noticeably large

As it smoothly glided across the earth's dome

That cloud moved so effortlessly on it's own

Without worry someone wouldn't leave it alone

I so badly wished to be as lazily unrestricted

As that cloud, seeing all there was to see

Those days, I felt like the things I wanted

Fell out of my grasp, being left and forgotten

The places I wanted to see and go to

Where all but ignored and undefined

Again and again, I tried to find new perspectives

Hoping, one day, I could get the impression

That, like a cloud, I could see all there was

And be all that I sought to

'How much does a cloud see in a day?'

I questioned out loud

Yet, a thought occurred to me on how:

I can regain those dreams again

If I truly believe I can achieve it

Though a cloud's journey is different

I began to see that there was no limit

To how much I needed to have faith in myself

And where I wanted to go

For I can do anything

If my mind is as opened

As the sky above me

My dreams can transform into anything

As the clouds drifting along in the breeze

All it takes it a little push within me

Who knows what can be propelled just by that

However, not giving myself the chance

Keeps me restricted and closed in

I knew that if I thought of that cloud

I, too, could accomplish any possibility

That cloud inspired the fearlessness

Blooming inside of me

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).
