Poetry On Odyssey: I'm Not A Shiny New Soul

My love is the same, it's old and pure.

I'm not a shiny fun soul. I'm not new. I'm not the most recent edition. I don't fit into the modernized world you live in. I'm not what you wish I could be. And I don't want to be.

I'm an old antique soul. I'm down to earth and tarnished with lives of experiences. I am reliable and sturdy. I don't come with instructions so don't try and use me like I do. I don't come with a lifetime warranty. You break me and I'm broken. You break me and you have to fix me the old fashioned way, with hard work. You have to fix me or you have to pay with a part of your soul to find a replacement.

There is nothing wrong with wanting the newest and shiniest out there. Just beware that if genuine is what you are looking for then you won't find another like me.

The difference between my down to earth antique soul and bright new shiny souls is that the things I give and do for others only come from the purest of love. It comes from the depth of my heart which has lived through millennia of love and heartbreak. My love is the same, it's old and pure. My love grows, it matures, it is constant, and its nothing like you've seen before.

Eventually, the things I give will simply not be enough, after time it won't have any value other than a sentimental collectible. But today is not that day. Today I am still everything you are looking for, today I'm still everything you never knew you wanted.

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.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
