The Cinema

A place we go to escape our reality

Where we watch stories unfold on the big screen

You could see a man fall to the depths of insanity

But when the lights turn on we ponder “What did it mean”.


We ask ourselves what the film was trying to say

Perhaps that life’s only worth living if spent with others

Or maybe we can’t leave what’s important for another day

Or maybe we should say “I love you” to our mothers.


In my opinion filmmaking’s an honourable craft

As it provides millions of people with enjoyment

And similar to some one stranded seeing a life raft

A film could end a suffering person’s torment.
