Poetry On Odyssey: Light and Glass

The story of a girl made of glass

PX Here

The wind lifted her long hair

so she flew high as a kite.

The sun beamed brightly down on the road ahead

as she walked

light as a fairy

but determined as a bee in a meadow.

You could see her halo glimmer even in the darkest of rooms

and everyone she touched was left

enchanted by her spell.


She wasn't like the others.

Her shine wasn't visible to anyone

except the luckiest people on this planet.


You see,

that is her superpower.

So few people get to see how brightly her light shines,

but if you are one of the few

lucky enough to get to see it

you'll never be the same.


Her light was so bright that it blinded

the few who could see it;

until the only thing left that they could see

was her porcelain painted face against the bright blue

cloudless sky and the golden sun.


Once you see what so few in the world have

the privilege to see in her,

to really see her,

it is said she would become your entire world.

Blind to everything else around you

she is all you could bear witness to.


But don't you worry, for this has only ever happened

once before

to an ocean eyed young man.


Little did we know that he would be the first to break her spell

to walk away

to break her soul.


It was he who threw the rock that shattered her

like glass

into a million tiny little pieces.


How unfortunate it is that such a beautiful creature

could be crushed so effortlessly.


All of the love inside of her poured out

it came faster and faster

as if it would never stop.

It poured from every crevice of her being

where she had held it in for so long

waiting for someone to come along worth giving it to.


“Tell me love,” she said,

“Did you feel anything when you threw that rock that crushed me?"

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
