Poetry On Odyssey: In A Matter Of Time

In a matter of time, you'll see what's on my mind.

When you get to really know me I have a lot to say, you learn things I have been wanting to tell people every day. But it always got left on the back burner, slowly waiting in the corner.


In A Matter Of Time

In a matter of time

you'll see what's on my mind.

How I truly feel and what's really real.


My heart is afraid

that my mind may take

the growth I have yet to chase

and create it into something it wasn't meant to be in the first place.


So here I am sitting on something

trying to learn a new life lesson.

Might by crying over too many emotions

or attaching to someone I know will help me see God in the commotion.


I may be alone overthinking every daily action

and judging myself by over-analyzing the simple interaction.

My stutter plays a role and wants that satisfaction

to make me feel not good enough as my reaction.


In a matter of time

You'll see what was on my mind.

How I truly feel

and what's really real.


Still, I find myself not wanting anyone to really know how I truly think

because I'm afraid you might leave in a blink.

And somehow I find my escape

in the things I have always known to always fill that space


I have a wall and yet to the outside, it seems so small.

I put on a brave face for the show

when all I want to do is break down and let it go.


When you get to really know me I have a lot to say

You learn things I have been wanting to tell people every day.

But it always got left on the back burner

slowly waiting in the corner.


In a matter of time

You'll see what's been on my mind.

How I truly feel

and what's really real.


Love is a word that is so unknown

Growing up that word was twisted all alone.

So defense, manipulation, and repressed became home

Who knew they would start breaking and showing you what you should've known.


There's an elephant in the room and that me who can't talk like you

So I avoid and protect myself in case everything becomes blue.

I tend to always find comfort in what I have always known

Even though it's been a downright battle facing it alone.


Yet here I am trying to pick up a new way of thinking

I want to feel those old ways stop linking.

Sometimes when I stop I see

I see what the newness could truly be.


In a matter of time

you'll see what's really on my mind.

How I truly feel

and what's really real.

6 Major Health Benefits Of A Crazy Road Trip

We all have a crazy adventure planned, that we live out solely through our Pinterest boards. It wasn't until recently, when I myself took the trip of a lifetime with two of my best friends, that I realized how good road trips can actually be for both your mind AND body.

Driving = Hippocampus Expansion

Taylor Kellogg

Driving, especially long distances, helps your brain with spatial reasoning. A Sunny Afternoon explains that driving actually helps this region of the brain make calculations and increases brain power. Kinda like sudoku... but on wheels.

New places, faces and experiences = MENTAL WORKOUT

Taylor Kellogg

Think of all the cool things you will see, the hundreds of different people you could meet, and the awesome places you'll explore. This overload of new information to process will help your brain build its capacity.

NATURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Taylor Kellogg

Fresh air and sunshine is the key to bettering your mind, which leads to bettering your body. Not only do your lungs get a break from pollution-filled air, but the sun boosts the Vitamin D levels in your body to put you in a better mood.

Good company = good mood.

Taylor Kellogg

Choose your travel buddies wisely. Yes, you'll be stuck in the car with them for a LONG period of time, but they also can help with your mental health. The happier you are and the more you laugh, the bigger boost your serotonin levels will get.

You (most likely) will get a lot of good exercise.

Taylor Kellogg

OK, hear me out... I know being cooped up in the car on a road trip isn't very good exercise. It's so important to pick a place that features some sort of physical aspect (I just took a hiking trip to a few national parks in Utah) so you can stretch those legs.

Your mind will thank you for finally going tech-free.

Taylor Kellogg

We're all obsessed with our phones (you are... admit it). Going on a road trip is the perfect way to go unplugged and give your eyes/mind a rest. Less smartphone/email/social media time means less stress.

If you need some backup for convincing your parents to let you go on a road trip, show them this article. You're welcome and travel safe!!!
