Poetry On Odyssey: I Don't Know You

Funny how you probably don't even know this is about you.

Poetry On Odyssey: I Don't Know You

I read your horoscope everyday, hoping it'll reveal something about you.

I listen to your Spotify recents on repeat.

I'm searching for an explanation, for something that finally makes sense.

All I want is to understand you, to find reasoning behind your behaviors.

But, truth be told, the only explanation is that there is none.

You just are the way that you are.

I wanted to believe I could change you, part of me always will,

Though I know people can't be changed.

I romanticized an image of you that was far from reality.

And every time you'd text me, I'd be disappointed as hell.

You could never truly reach my standards.

You couldn't possibly, for who could reach the clouds.

I've been told I live in my thoughts, that I let my fantasies consume me.

I've been told to let you go.

Maybe what I've been told is true, but I have no fantasies without you.

Every time I try to leave, I'm always drawn back in.

I used to tell people we were soulmates.

I don't quite know if I believe in that notion anymore, but the notion of being alone is far worse.

All the horoscopes in the world couldn't tell me who you are,

Nor could all the songs.

So here I am, accepting that I don't know you, I don't really know you at all.

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
