I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

Millie Bobby Brown is a very impressive 16-year-old. The actress is not only an accomplished actress, she is also a producer, too. The Stranger Things star is set to star in and produce a new Netflix film, The Girls I’ve Been. The news was first reported by Deadline. Netflix has since confirmed the movie, which is an adaptation of the upcoming young adult novel with the same name by Tess Sharpe. We don’t have too many details yet about the film or its release, but we do know that The Girls I’ve Been is suspense thriller centered around a con artist, played by Millie Bobby Brown, who “use[s] her powers of persuasion and impersonation to free herself, her girlfriend and ex-boyfriend from a bank hostage situation,” according to a tweet from @NetflixFilm.

Netflix has also landed the rights to Mill Bobbie Brown’s next feature film Enola Holmes. Brown plays Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes’s rebellious teenage sister, Enola. Enola is a gifted super-sleuth who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings. The film is set to premiere in September.  “England, 1884 – a world on the brink of change,” the film’s official synopsis reads. “On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes (Millie Bobby Brown) wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), both set on sending her away to a finishing school for ‘proper’ young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord (Louis Partridge), Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history.”


As for Stranger Things, Netflix is still working out when Brown and the rest of the cast will be able to return to the production to shoot the third season.
