Poetry On Odyssey: This Is Us

I will forever hold you in my heart. Close beside me, never apart.

Poetry On Odyssey: This Is Us
Sarah Mason

There you hang every morning

Every night I see you

Arms around your shoulders

Your cackling grin spread to my smile

Both child and woman so thin

But not as thin as you'd become

The drinks in the picture would go

Unnoticed if the story was not told

But if only that daiquiri would been

Your last sip of alcohol or

If this hug would of saved you or the cigarettes

You're body would betray you

Weakness overcome you

I stood by your side as your brain

Wasted away

You said my name

I'm here grandma but you're not seeing me

Until a later day I will see you again

Hear that laugh one more time

Smell your perfume and

Show you how proud I am of the laugh lines I have just like you

You would be so proud

Of where I am now

I start everyday wishing I could see you

But knowing you're with me

This picture is us

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.”
