So pure and sure and violent

Poetry On Odyssey: An Affair

No matter what we go through in this life, our heart is right there, going through it, too. She takes it in, and she interprets the lessons and memories that ultimately leave you changed. It's a pure and sure and violent affair. You'll always heal though. You'll always heal.

An Affair

The wind doesn't go through me

It sweeps me,

picks me up and takes me

And knocks me down to break me

An affair

So pure and sure

So violent

Escaping through

The breadth and depth of


I fall in love with every pair of eyes

Such stories and reasons and seas

I question and probe,

My mouth a kaleidoscope

So come and collide

With me

I break apart in each pair of hands

As they mold and shape and release

I'm lying there trying

My windows are crying

But you put up your curtains,

Can't see me

I carry so much on my back and my pockets

I don't fall I don't quit, I don't spill

I'm struggling and climbing

At Sisyphus timing

Never finding the top of the hill

Oh, but for that split moment

I feel it's all worth it

For having a heart

Yes using my heart

Gives me the blessing

To feel

For I use my heart for what it was given

I feel so much in each every moment

And sure sometimes I can feel heavy And broken

But with the strength of my soul,

I'll always have

The power and blessing to heal

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
