Poetry On Odyssey: Soft Heart

She's not made of glass but she can still be hurt.

Poetry On Odyssey: Soft Heart

She has a soft heart,

but she will let you

try and break it.

She won't tell you that it can't be broken.

Her soft heart is malleable,

it's been formed and reformed

through her life.

You won't break it.

At best you'll restore

some missing part.

At the worst,

you'll reshape it once more.

But her soft heart

is not what you need

to worry about breaking.

Her spirit is what will take the pain.

She is the one who

has guy friends

that aren't afraid to

fight some of her fights for her.

The same friends that

will build a pillow fort

and watch old movies

when you won't.

They know when she

is hurt,

even when she doesn't

tell them.

They'll know what you

are doing to her

before she can even

guess at what you have in store.

She may have a soft heart,

but if you break her spirit

it won't be her heart

you have to worry about.

She'll hold her friends back

to save you before they can do anything.

It is only because she knows

how to protect her heart.

It won't be the friends

you have to worry about.

No, you hurt her soft heart

and broke her spirit.

Her mind is the force

to be reckoned with.

Her heart will sit and watch what happens

as she burns your world down.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
