Appreciation: A Poem

Take some time out of your day to recognize the beauty surrounding you.


Have you ever sat on a lonesome bench
Mesmerized by the beauty of the vivacious, irrepressible nature?

The towering, virescent trees and the cotton candy sky
Creating a gradient of rife
Yet unique imagery
Embedded in your corneas.
A view so vivid, the depth so glorious,
You can sit for hours
Admiring the creation that you so luckily
Got a chance to experience firsthand.

The quiet strangers will pass by
With no appreciation, not the same imagination,
Stuck glaring onto gaudy screens
That are nowhere near the perfection of hues
Creeping up on their senses.
But you want to try and recognize
Every passing bird and ripple on the pond,
Every shudder of the trees,
Losing leaf by leaf,
In slow motion.

Even when the wrathful clouds approached,
Overfilled with tension and suspense,
There was no intention of incensing the air,
Only to bring droplets of life
To the standstill landscape,
And filter the air of negativity
With a sharp, almost gelid breeze
Filling your nostrils,
And with raindrops that slowly trickle down your goosebumps.

It's been a whole hour of lonesome admiration

But there is no desire to leave
Because you know you get to witness
The colors of the rainbow behind the hill.
So you sit there, Calmly waiting.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
