“Thoroughbred is a film about the isolating pursuit of perfection. The daily battle waged between ambition and anxiety.”

Thoroughbred Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Kurt Schneider (2019)

Here again, seated with a gnawing feeling of dissatisfaction.
The ache in my stomach, the push at my back, always constant.
Forward.
Driven by that ambiguous spark. 
I question its origin, its impetus.
Burning, my envy rages against those so easily satisfied.
To know that peace would be bliss.
Yet were it offered, I know I would decline.
For as much as I disdain its presence, I invite its consistency.
Always more, always next.
For now, that great fear, the gap between my accomplishments and its expectations, subsides for the day. 
I’ve earned this calm, this freedom.
But it is fleeting.
For tomorrow, we start again.

Poem Written & Performed by:  Sh’maya

The water, that’s where it always begins.
That curling veil, that skin of glass,
Whole worlds exist beneath its surface.
I hear them in my sleep,
Stories waiting for breath.
Shapes reaching for life.
