Promising Beginning

Written by Jacob Ibrag

Drive into the theater in your mind.

Review what is playing and at what times. An oldie

from years back. A promising beginning, and a tragic end. Not

really tragic because it’s sad, more so because it’s obvious. A middling

middle you want to skip. You wish you picked another flick. And yet you

continue because you’ve binged everything else. You promise toย take

your time on future shows. And as conclusion nears, you

thank the lord. There aren’t any sequels, and

you will never be this bored.

Hey everyone. I recorded myself reading this piece. Please let me know what you think. Did what I could to keep the quality of the audio high. Feedback is much appreciated. Thanks and have a wonderful day!

  7. Iโ€™ll check it out in my computer and report later. Iโ€™m on my cell phone now and it wouldnโ€™t play. But, I appreciated the words – the metaphor of life to a film – yes, this episode will pass – our story is not totally told – not yet! Look for the silver lining!

    • Thank you! I’ve actually been meaning to turn that pop up off, it looks like it’s broken. You can still subscribe through WordPress.
