Poetry on Odyssey: Why Me?

Poetry on Odyssey: Why Me?

Why did you pick me to lie to?


Why me? Must it be?
Why am I the one you choose?
Why am I the one that gets used?
The one that gets abused?

You play your games like a child,
But you force yourself into a lie.
You make me feel like I'm a child
Or even an annoying fly.

I find your flags of red
And when I ask you, you run.
Because now you've made your bed.
Your lies were bullets and your mouth was the gun.

Why me? Was it because I'm nice?
Or was it because you thought I was naive?
I hate to tell you that you lost the roll of the dice.
Now you know I wont hesitate to leave.

But, why you? Why do you act this way?
Harming others on the inside.
Doesn't the guilt eat you up inside or choke you like a twist-tie?

Your lies create a web that only ensnares yourself because you secretly care about nobody else.
Why me? Because I'm me.
Why you? You tell me...

The memory of you is only a shadow of what it used to be.
I couldn't be happier to forget something,
And finally be free and be me.

Make a plethora of different homemade slimes! This can be super fun and super messy if that's what you're in the mood for!

No matter what some people may say, makeup is definitely art to me. Practice some new looks if you want, or try a new product. Makeup is never supposed to look one certain way! There are no rules with it.

Poetry On Odyssey: Raising Teens

Don't sleep all morning and wake up at two.


If you go outside, oh the things that you can do!

Ride your bike, skateboard, and rollerblade, too!

You could go build a fort, or see animals at the zoo!

Don't sleep all morning and wake up at two

only to waste the day watching movies about kung fu!

I'm wasting my breath, you're not listening, are you?

You little prick, I bet you'd be up if your friends said to come through.

I swear, the only exercise you get is jerking to a random black guy screw

or to some broke meth-head teen making her porn debut.

Fine, fuck it, kid, I don't care anymore. Do what you want today. You do you.
