Poetry on Odyssey: It Isn't Our Song

A poem on the toxicity of control, and how easily it affects even the most open of people.

She still remembers when

She'd turn her favorite station on;

You'd tell her to turn it down,

It still isn't our song.

Another one would play,

And you couldn't bear to hear

Another string of lyrics

Make its way into her ear.

You'd say it was a promise,

A vow to never harm,

To never be tasked to listen through

Sounds of any less charm.

But the task was half the journey

To find that which would heal,

And she was left broken

By a song with no appeal.

You harmed more than you cured,

And when you went away,

She stopped listening to music,

And her pain remains today.

For now all sounds will harm,

Regardless of the cheer,

And what's left is just a promise,

One she couldn't bear to hear.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month.
