Fight or Flight

For those who have been reading my page, there may already be a sense of confusion. I started this blog without a clear understanding of what I wanted to achieve. Perhaps I wanted an account for the upcoming events in this transitional period of my life, or maybe a niche to promote my written works or creative art. Whatever the reason, my current progress has been a bit stunted do to immense pressures from other aspects of my life, one of which being the pursuit of a passion project of mine.

Thus far, my blog has been on the abstract and that all written entries have been more of an abstract illustration of my written process, as well as my thoughts and beliefs. My clarity up to this point of my own life has always been murky, lost under a fog of doubt and insecurity. My recent experiences have given me that much desired clarity, only found under a trial-by-fire period.

Allow me to bestow that clarity upon you:

My name is Alejandro Bernal and I have always understood myself as an avid storyteller. Growing up, I always had an imagination that wished desperately to manifest itself into my own reality. Without much of an understanding as to how to do this, my own solace was to imagine myself and my own characters existing within the frame of television and film. I knew that my passion and my purpose was to drive this energy into the written form, developing worlds and characters that could perhaps one day exist on screen.

In recent weeks since beginning this blog, I decided to make that leap into the unknown and pursue a career towards professional screenwriting and entertainment. A scary decision for any, my decision to literally give up job and home for this endeavor has become something of a crucible, as certain aspects of the journey have not panned out the way I had originally envisioned.

This is not to say that I regret any of the past decisions that led me to this point. In fact, I am even more vindictive towards this path, in which if it were not for the tremendous circumstances that would call upon my primal "fight or flight" mechanism, I would not be the man that stands before you today, confident in the power that only lies from within.

To those who reads these words, I say to you now that fear of failure cannot be the definitive factor in your course of life. Judgement, instinct, and ambition are at its finest when one is painted in a corner, when there is absolutely no form of escape except to move forward. Live life with no regrets and its true gifts will reveal themselves upon you, for our own purpose is to strive for the perfection of a life that others would define as a masterpiece.

Stay vigilante

A distance with no end 
A tunnel with no light
A war with no flag
Standing at an edge of a great field
a chaos of war in the horizon
I look towards a strength that can only be described by evolution
My higher mind & being knows what to do
But it is a matter of understanding
and listening to see the direction.
Follow the field into an unknown
Confident in my own safety that will lead me to the righteous path
Harden your spirit from external agents that wish your demise
The spear stands tall in the wind
Ready for the fight of its life
