Acting is like shrapnel.  You either have it or you don’t.

If you need to ask, it is likely talent has yet been found.

Yet, this all said, most do have strands of skill within.

It is only through massage and nurture

that one can develop them away from their innate stature.

 

 

So, acting is indeed like shrapnel.

Those harboring its blessings within,

need only to find the most effective manner

in bringing each fragment

to the truth residing upon the surface of the flesh

About hobgoblin2011

I'm a poet and aspiring screenwriter/songwriter with a passion for film, art, photography, philosophy and heavy metal. I love reading, mainly non-fiction, comic books, graphic novels, myth and reference. Family always comes first for me. I'm a proud father to two wonderful pups and two curious cats. I'm also a glutton for punishment aka the life of being a diehard Buffalo Bills and Sabres fan.
