Poetry on Odyssey: Where God Was Too Weary To Stay A God

We fail to see that
Our home is a sinking ship,
Vanishing slowly.

Poetry on Odyssey: Where God Was Too Weary To Stay A God

They failed to see that
This place was a sinking ship
Inevitably doomed.

So we embark on journeys together.
Come in, be ready, and go to the town
Where dreams are too tired and lost to stay dreams
Where the house was too worn to stay a house
Where God was too weary to stay a God.
Israel may have called this Babylon.
Follow the dirt road that only has dirt
Into the town where our hearts won't be the same.

The road to the once-civilization
Which only has at mind our concept of loss
Of control. Only to realize that people
Here in the town lived in a sinking ship,
So tormented by a tsunami, from
Both outside and within, and all they did
Was resist. It may have been futile.
It may have been an effort beyond what
Human beings have been capable of,
Without the help of God. Now the old town
Is a ruined beauty of disheveled grace,
Too pained to even stomach the concept
Of moving on.

Natural plastics, sustainable waste,
Nightmare-tormented, God-forsaken, it's
Too hard to see the sun also rises
Here. The cellar of the house beckons with
Only silence, and the screams of ghosts bounce
Off the walls, falling on nobody's ears.
The town, the sunken ship, a bleak lesson
Of what? Of us. Of our town, ship, and home.
That was them, I think, but it's also us.
A soon-to-be dead civilization,
Where all we futily do is resist.

We fail to see that
Our home is a sinking ship,
Vanishing slowly.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.
