An Odyssey Poem: Live Yo' Best Life​

This past year has been such a dream; traveling to Anaheim, LA, Oceanside, everywhere in between. It was all such a fun and amazing time, I'm so lucky to be here living my best life.

An Odyssey Poem: Live Yo' Best Life​
Ethan Titus

This past year has been such a dream
Traveling to Anaheim, LA, Oceanside
Everywhere in between
It was all such a fun and amazing time
I'm so lucky to be here living my best life

I write for Odyssey, I'm a server and have great friends
The smile I share online and in person
Is more than genuine

I'm so happy, so much happier than before
I have my family, friends and dogs
What more could I ask for?

I used to think life was all about love
Money, popularity, being Regina George

Well news flash honey, ain't shit about that

If you don't love yourself, don't expect anyone to back

I have Sam, Dani, Yolanda and Tay
I have April, Brandon, Q, Moe and the J's
I have Cyrus, Jake, Fox, all my furry friends
I have Grandma and Grandpa who I love always, to no end
We can't forget about Matt, Christina and Wes
Dad, Kayc, and both of their furry friends

My life is so awesome, I am so lucky
This poem might seem like I have it easy
I assure you I don't, and I'm not trying to be cheesy

Some days are absolutely harder than others
But at the end of it all, I don't need my mother

She ruined my life, and everyone around hers
Mostly mine, but hey, she doesn't care

When she pretended to have cancer
Some of us were smart enough to know better
I don't care about her, her feelings or her life
What can I say? She wasn't a mother

To my sisters I love so deeply forever
My brother I don't remember
Or whatever other kids she might have had

Being a big brother is such a blessing
I'm sorry I'm not there for school dances, but hopefully your wedding

I'm writing this poem for everyone out there
It gets better I promise, just believe in yourself
Get help, talk to friends, your family and counselors

You aren't alone, no matter what you think
High school sucks and hey, boys stink

You were the baddest bish in the sandbox
You still the baddest bish in all the land
It's about to be summer, live your best life
Hell, get a spray tan
