Poetry On Odyssey: A Gliding Passion

You'll learn what you love and love what you do- always remember to be you.

Poetry On Odyssey: A Gliding Passion

Passion is something that burns within the walls of your heart

It's noticeable when you suffer from it

Since is not something that you can withstand apart

Nor not something you can quit

Whether you grew up surrounded by it as a child

Or picked it up a little later on

The feeling you will get is not mild

And your passion will never be gone

That feeling of excitement and strength

Will take you to new places

And throughout your journey

You'll meet many memorable faces

You'll learn what you love

And love what you do

Think of it as a perfect fit similar to a hockey glove

But always remember to be you

Think of how you pushed through your hesitation

And who others that didn't believe

That your passion can turn into mesmerization

And you will eventually achieve

You see yourself sharper than a skate

And know you grow every day

Even if you have a lot on your plate

You won't give up on what's here to stay

It is clear that you will face difficult times

Similar to unsharpened blades on ice

But sooner or later you'll be in your prime

And thank yourself for rolling the dice

You'll learn that being a woman is truly something great

And while working with hockey

You have the power to defend hate

Even if the road gets a little rocky

You will come across good and bad days

Just like a brand new snapped stick

But thank yourself for your many ways

Because you know your passion was the right pick

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
