There's a new sherriff in town....

Poetry On Odyssey: Last Thing On My Mind When The Sun Shines

I think of you

when the sun does not shine;

when I close my eyes;

I see us.

when the sun shines,

I feel nervous.

when I open my eyes;

immediately blind;

you did nothing;

I did nothing;

you speak;

I listen.

it becomes something;

I speak;

you listen.

It is something;

you ask;

I answer;

I question;

you retort.

we are back to nothing;

all I want;

is for you on board;

not asking why


I cannot help you

If you help me;

nor can I help myself;

no, I don't want your help;

I learned more;

and need more.

You learned;

and earned

my trust.

I trust you;

you trust me;

so, that's that.

do not give me that crap,

I will see you;

when my vision

is complete.

when your help

becomes a need.

when my help

can make you see.

but, for now,

don't ask why,

or how;

because I still have yet to figure it out.

you may even know

all the answers

that have not yet been told.

please go ahead and scold;

just know,

there's nothing I can do;

when I don't love you;

you're always going to wonder,

and keep trying,

but, baby, I am not lying.

I love you, yeah.

but, you're not meant for me.

sure, I'll be there for you,

If you will be, too;

nothing should be news.

The sun will rise,

And one day,

I'll let you know if it shines,

Or if it still blinds.

For now,

Get your head out of the clouds,

and please just understand

The Superbowl is the biggest football event of the year, and the 50-year history of the competition has seen a lot of memorable moments. The event first began in 1967, when the first AFL-NFL World Championship Game was played in Los Angeles. Since then, the NFL has grown from a small regional competition to an international phenomenon. Over the course of the last 50 years, the Superbowl has seen some amazing plays, memorable moments and incredible records. This includes Tom Brady's record of five Superbowl titles, the first time the Patriots won three consecutive championships, and the Steelers' record of six Superbowl titles.

11 Genres Of Music That Originated From Black Culture

Numbers don't lie, up in the charts many times, black culture has defined the music industry. Music is a worldly language that can be understood by people all over the world. You bet black culture has taken over the music industry, but not from the way you may think. I'm not talking about their prominent presence in the rap game, but the origins of eleven different genres of music. Black culture is always using their heritage and ancestral knowledge to transmute the current energy to a higher frequency. Personally, I'm not surprised that many of these music genres have originated from black culture. Thankfully, I've been able to grow up in a diverse environment. I can only thrive in a diversity of friends.
