Poetry on Odyssey: Nature And Its Unseen Beauty

Poetry on Odyssey: Nature And Its Unseen Beauty

In our modern days, we may not appreciate nature as much as we should.

When they see fire, they see darkness, destruction, danger,

but when she looks upon tendrils of flickering life,

she envisions vitality, fortitude, resilience.

Her aspirations drift higher than the wisps of coal-black smoke.

She can perceive the colossal blaze within others,

For it is reflected within their eyes.

When they see earth, they rejoice in slashed trees, poisoned dirt,

immeasurable waste,

but when she catches a glimpse of lush greenery entangled with fair blossoms,

she can feel her Mother stretch her arms and make mountains rumble,

and with every laugh create thundering squalls.

She feels her wisdom take root on top of her intuitions.

When they see air, they notice the biting cold, brewing cyclone, and the stealer of kites;

when she glances upon a timely gust,

she observes the slight breeze that pushes back stubborn tresses to reveal a small smile,

the forceful gale that allows alders to dance elegantly without fear,

that gives flight to her dreams so that it may soar for a long way.

In a monochrome world,

She is The One to see countless colors.

10 TV Shows That Can Replace 'The Office' On Netflix By 2021



Netflix has done it again. Created a mass panic. But this time the reason is not that "Friends" is being taken down or renewed for a giant price.

No, this time it is much worse.

Netflix has said in just TWO short years, it is likely NBC will be taking 'The Office' down. I know, it is unthinkable. What else are we suppose to rewatch a hundred times and quote endlessly? You cannot simply take Michael Scott off of Netflix. The best thing to ever happen was for Netflix to put "The Office", they made it popular again. And you @ me on that. But now they are removing it. I guess we will just have to watch other shows now.

Find other shows on Netflix to watch and to fill the void that NBC is creating for us.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
