Found My Way

Just when I think,
"I have found my way"
Turnaround and look:
The past's back to stay.

"Go away! Go away!"
Tears squeeze my eyes tight.
"Go away! Go away!
I'm not ready for this fight."

But a fight there is,
More familiar than ever.
And this time I wonder,
'Will my past stay forever?'

With answers unknown,
The future unclear,
I succumbed to the nightmares -
My very worst fear.

I'm out of control!
Locked here in this bubble.
Not sure of the path
To take after this stumble.

But you've helped me to focus,
Gave me tools to move on.
Slowly opened my eyes
As the dark turns to dawn.

There are angels among us.
That much I know.
I can never repay you
For the hope that grows.

And maybe, who knows,
There will come a day
When I'll say it and mean it:
I have finally found my way.

Small Minded Soccer Moms

I saw the movie mother! tonight.

I won’t be reviewing the movie.

However,

To the small minded soccer moms in the same theater as me (during a 4:50pm showing):

I’m sorry you don’t know what an allegory is, nor a metaphor, nor an artistic symbol.

You must’ve read that Robert Frost poem and thought that man was just taking a long stroll in the snow.

Anyway, the same phony intellects that LOVED Inception (hated it! A dream within a dream within a dream within a dream? Fuck you, Nolan) after hearing about glowing reviews, are the same phonies who saw something about this movie getting an F and decided way before showtime that they disliked this movie.

Enough to cackle and boo during quiet scenes with low sounding dialog. Grown ass women, whom I saw outside the theater as one declared, “Sharknado was a better movie!”

Seriously, I hope you choke on your Cheesecake Factory dinners so that we can harvest your organs for the actual smart people.

Next time, go see the LEGO movie. That’s more your speed.
