Mind’s Infection

Everywhere I go there seems to be a voice
It’s always closed holding me by the throat
At night it rages, on not letting me dream
It hurts my head so much that i want to scream
Instead of thinking, I just want to float

Time is fast, tomorrow’s always here
Everyday I feel it getting near
Ignorance makes it harder and acknowledgment gives me fear
Moving on with life I realized I am older
My school days are closing, almost done and over

The voice still exists growing stronger by the day
The pressure is overwhelming, I just want to run away
Everyone’s expectations are holding me down
They’re like an anchor that causes me to drown
Instead of grounding me, it freezes me all around

I wait for the hour that I would be free
I just want someone to have faith in me
I feel like instead of making hope, I just make debris
Even though I’m young, I think so ahead
Something about the future just fills me with dread

I wait for the hour that I would find the key
Waiting out there for someone to look at me
The flaws in myself is the only thing I can see
The voice inside is so harsh with words
Snapping judgement for everything i cant afford

Judgement is something that I face everyday
The strongest judge would always be myself
Criticized myself in every way
There’s no use in asking for help
Deep in fear and thinking on what they would say

Whenever I look at the mirror I feel shame
I don’t want fame
I just want to stay in my room alone
That doesn’t mean I would be sad though
Why would I be sad over something i’ve never known?

I’m not ready for what the future holds
But that’s just how I feel, not what I think
I have so many questions that have no answers
Secrets that I would tell no one, not even a shrink
Trust is something hard to give so don’t think of me lesser

After graduation , i don’t know what I’d do
So many decisions, where do I put my hope in to?
Who I am, would I still be in the future?
Who I was in a past is getting farther
Becoming someone else for others have become so hard, it makes me want to fall under

My heart’s always closed, always on guard
But no matter how much you humiliation
I still believe in love and trust
Even though i prefer to stay in my hidden thoughts
I will find a way to kill my mind’s infection



Watching it VS Reading it

        In modern times, people have stated that they prefer to watch the movie or T.V. series of a story over reading it. I support that statement. There are many benefits to watching a movie or series over reading it and many people would say would reading the book also has plenty of benefits over watching it.

       One great benefit of watching a movie it that its easier to understand what happening. Its true that you may get much more details in reading but in watching, everything is done in front of the viewers eyes that is easy to understand and goes on in a set pace to make it easier for us to follow unlike reading where you can read at any pace that you want. By reading to fast or too slow, I damages the overall experience of the reader as they may often get confused or disoriented on certain details of the story.

       Another good advantage is that its just faster to watch a movie or T.V. series than to read over a hundred thousand words. Most movies today have around an hour of run time, probably three hours at most. Movies are capable to show the viewer a scene that would probably take three paragraphs to read in a movie. Although a person can pick up a book and read anytime, it could take a full day at least of nonstop reading to finish a book in a single sitting. T.V. series also have the advantage of having a good place to begin and start. Because a series can’t go on for too long, it ends at appropriate moments to make the viewer comeback for more.

       It is true that reading helps people be more imaginative as it gives specific to make the scene real in their head, but people also actually want to see it happen with their eyes. Imagining is different from actually seeing it in front of you behind the screen. Characters have actual faces instead of vague facial and body characteristics. Places look real, they’re not words that you have to visualize to get a correct scene in your head. Movies and T.V. also have the advantage to play the appropriate music in a scene, a musical piece truly suited for a situation.

A book may be the inspiration or source of a movie or T.V. show’s storyline but that doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily the better version of a story. People can have their opinions, but some opinions can be wrong. This is not one of those types of choices, people can have a preference. Watching something on the screen is just better for me than reading it.

Reading Can Be Fun


       Reading is an ability that has been with mankind for along time and since the creation of movies, people have disregarded reading as an activity only for getting information or something work related. I want to be able to give a reason on how reading can be pleasurable and helpful in other ways aside from work for some people, how it can be fun.

       Writing had been used to store information, it branched out and people started to write fiction to create worlds using words and sentences. Today, through the use of technology, accessing stories or specific information has been made easier than ever. So why read? Reading, for me, has been a way to escape reality. When I read, I travel to another world and experience another life.  Seems cool when I put it like that right? Reading make people feel emotions suck as joy or despair. It can shape a persons’s identity in their beliefs and morals. So by reading, people can change.



       Creativity and Imagination, I believe that reading can help a person improve these two characteristics. When a person reads, He or She conjure up in their mind what exactly is happening in the story. You yourself are the one to make your own interpretation of the words that you read. We produce images in our head not unlike the images we see on big screens. The difference is that other people created those pictures, not you. Because we have no pictures to follow, we make our own instead.

       Some people would say that books are boring and tedious to read through. You just need to find the right book that interests you. There plenty of genres for us to choose from, both published and not. One of the types of reading material are bound to catch your interest. You need to be able to give your time and patience to enjoy books and novels. I assure you that by the last page of book, you will feel a strong emotion. These emotions could be positive and negative, depending on the book.

        Books help people feel and being able feel emotions is part of being human. People today seem to lack the same empathy they once had before. I believe that through the pleasure of reading, people will grow. So start reading now.
