Poetry On The Odyssey: Cold

Poetry On The Odyssey: Cold

Warm me with your roaring fire and make me bold


Cold is the absence of heat

It is what I feel when I run away

But hiding from you is an impossible feat

You always pull me back into your embrace

When I fall short, I feel unworthy

I try to hide my face in shame

But even though I am unworthy of it, your love surrounds me

It's always constant and always there just the same

Lord, when I feel alone and cold

Wrap me in blankets of your love

Warm me with your roaring fire and make me bold

But help me to remember I rely on your warmth, because I'm not that tough

Lord, may your heat never leave my heart

And may you provide me with an abundance of your fire to share it with other hearts

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."


In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

Game Of Thrones Characters That Deserve A Spin-Off

Winter is coming.


Now that we are almost done with the greatest saga of all times-and with unanimous disappointment, all that we fans can hope for-to redeem our love for some of the most loved characters is a spin-off.

Here is a list of some of the characters I would really love to know the backstory of:

1. Tywin Lannister


I still have goosebumps when I hear 'Rains of Castamere'. I feel like his character as described in the show is just a tip of the iceberg. I haven't read the books but I'm sure they must have sketched this character in much greater detail. It'll be exciting to see Tywin Lannister paying some debts.

2. Ned Stark


The story behind Catelyn being promised to Benjen Stark and then ending up with Eddard Stark, the revolt led by Ned and Robert Baratheon, Ned learning about Lyanna and Jon; All these areas need some more light shed upon them.

3. Benjen Stark


How did he end up manning the wall? The backstory from Westeros to north of the wall needs to be told.

4. Olenna Tyrell


That sass needs much more screen time than she is given. High Garden, as described in all the conversations, would be a treat to the eyes and the grandeur must be worth visiting.

5. Syrio Forel


What do we say to Syrio Forel? "Come back today!"

What happened to him? Where did he vanish to? A lot of questions need to be answered!

6. Jaqen H'ghar


Who is the person behind all the faces? What is the origin of this man? Is he still alive? This would be an interesting story to unfold.

7. Bronn


All of us would agree with this spin-off. Bronn living his life in High Garden as promised, or looking for people like Tyrion Lannister to buy his sword will be intriguing.

8. Oberyn Martell


The kind of pain that his character dispels and the bitter vengeance is result of a very bitter past which deserves an elaborate depiction.

9. The Clegane brothers


What led to the acerbic relations of these brothers? How did it build over the years? It will be scary and equally interesting to know.
