Poetry On Odyssey: Ode To My Favorite President
Start writing a post

An Ode to my favorite President.

How your lips can murmur sweet nothings

Upon my ear

I can only hear the hope instilled

Upon me.

God, I love America.

Your insensitive word crimes

Only proves your dialect

And commitment

To this land of the free

And the economy

Your touch upon the children of America

Your impact is not unlike

The Red Scare, MK Ultra,

Japanese Internment camps,

Or even the War on Drugs

And other great accomplishments

Of this great nation

The gracious curse you bestow

Towards the children

In another country

I sure am glad

To be born freely

For I have no other choice

The justice you endow us with:

Words of love, except hatred

You will bring change

I have the patience

For this eventuality

My pity

Towards your elegant ways

Your sweet-talking phrases

Can make me forget

All of the promises you've made

The inhumane torture,

Can be a chore

So I will only focus on

Your conjecture

And policies that make me feel warm in my home

The sick people in the street

Wish they can see

The President in the light that I do.

Unpatriotic freaks

Would never storm the Capitol

You, you are the lesser of the two evils

So I will ignore all of the allegations against you

And I will dedicate my life

Towards your empowerment

For I am American

You may be the antichrist,

But I'm a good person

My vote counts towards you

And your satanic tendencies

For you are the lesser evil

But not the better good.

If history must repeat itself

Let it repeat

With you starring as Romulus

I have no care

For you will handle it graciously

Oh! Nation of love

And not of fear

My confidence is whole

As He keeps the water clean in the suburbs,

He drains the swamp for the alligators.

The equality in every state,

The cocaine shipped into every ghetto

The bare feet on the White House lawn

The bared teeth of the soldiers who fight

For the gasless stations

The warheads in your possession

Defines our intention

Of our boundless power

Of Nagasaki,

Of Hiroshima:

The desire for the world to fall like a tower.

For revenge is the key to equality and freedom.

The suppression of voices

The cries of Natives,

The tears of millions

Are swept under the White House grass

In order to insure

A more perfect Union.

You are the salvation for humanity

So, bomb the middle east

Lock those parentless kids in cages

Say those slurs

And torture those foreigners

Because I have faith in you,

And so do my neighbors.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Every single one of us has a story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
