Poetry On Odyssey: Chasing The Sun

My gypsy soul is stuck in Kansas.

Poetry On Odyssey: Chasing The Sun

Chasing the sun and watching it fade,

the light, the blue, the dark, the gray.

Blacken trees are outlined in the distance,

there's a high tide coming in.

Wanting to drift off into a deep sleep,

the humming of this high couldn't come more naturally.

With red lights in my eyes,

I take it as a warning sign to stay away.

Tall grassing hushing my inner thoughts with a quick whisper.

Mile marker 322,

how do you convey my noise as a choice and not something seen as overdue?

The pressure of wanting the best for myself,

the pressure of wanting nothing but that for myself.

Top shelf status.

If my car broke down now where would I go?

Crossing the eye West is a strange sign of death,

opening mine is the one thing I have left to do.

Before I can truly move on,

and realize that no matter where I go I will always be connected to you.

Deep Creek Road 316,

what do you say we go and make some memories?

Would you hide away with me until we were free,

from high-grade expectations and low-grade connotations?

Nine more miles and I'm there,

Nine more miles and I lose my air.

I think it's time that I leave,

or at least find room to breathe.

The Sun setting to my left and the stars to my right,

which way do I go?

Which way do I fight?

I am lost in my mind,

where no two words are kind.

The continuous red lights,

this fading day time.

This feeling doesn't forget.

I need that safety,

I can't do any maybe's.

One, two, three stars I see in my blacken sky,

the hill to my left is hiding the light.

Red lights closing in,

I guess my fate has sunken in.

I am here for now,

but this is not the end.

One day I'll chase the light,

and one day I won't get trapped behind what's not right.

I'll find my home,

on my own.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
