I Watch Movies

When I want a new experience,

 

When I want to be captivated,

 

When I want to be taken somewhere,

 

And be told a story,

 

When I want to think…

 

 

 

…or feel,

 

 

When I want to be educated,

 

to be excited,

 

to be inspired,

 

to be comforted,

 

or most importantly,

 

to escape,

 

 

 

 

I watch movies.

 

 

Movies are like friends who never leave your side,

 

And know they’re role is to calm or motivate you;

 

They’ll always stay the same,

Yet you can never watch them the same way twice.

 

There’s always a new journey,

 

Another character to support you at all times,

 

And when you least expect it,

 

You slip out of reality

 

And

 

f

             

                 a

             

                                l

              

                                                    l

 

Headfirst into another world

 

Where your problems are eliminated,

 

Your worries vanish,

 

And you are constantly on the edge of your seat,

 

Yet always at

 

Peace.
