Unexpected Possibilities

An original poem for the hidden opportunities that present themselves. Live them out as you see fit!


Hey readers! I reflected a bit about possibilities and how unexpectedly they can come. When we place our energy elsewhere, there's the chance we aren't even paying as much attention to what is actually changing around us. This is not to say don't pay attention at all, but rather trust that the order of things will make sense in due time. With this in mind, I wrote this week's poem to inspire anticipation for the possibilities that await you. Stay focused and all will be revealed as it should be. Peace, everyone!

Waiting is hard, yet

Anticipation is harder

The rings of nervousness

Swirl around in my stomach

The sun seems much brighter

The clouds appear much bigger

It's all because of this feeling

That things are changing for the best

And that makes me nervous

'Is this a trick of some sort?'

The weight of this question toils away

Until I took a breath and released the tension

I do this to myself constantly,

Not accepting good things for what they are

Sometimes, that has proved effective

But right now, it isn't the time

For why should I not expect things to happen because they occur

When I least thought they would?

It's the way of the world

Possibilities are helping this feeling

Dwindle as I place my favor

Into seeking what this will bring me

I look up at the sky

Remembering how I felt

When I truly believed I would never

See the opportunities I sought after for so long

A tear forms in each eye because

I'm grateful for the unexpected chance

To make my aspirations come true

Dreaming and believing have lead

To this moment where I do trust

Where I can walk through that door

Into the endless gratitude of chances

I'm not talking about luck

But a real time to shine

I smiled and wiped the tears away

Today was another day

And the night would bring something new too

I waited again with anticipation

For what the stars would bring

That's the way of the world, it's true

But thanks to believing in unexpected possibilities,

I was ready to see it through

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?
