New Cherubino

How good it is to find myself

In love with everyone

And revel as a lover should

In everything that’s done


How great it is to not despair

But enjoy what’s lost and won

No pain and sorrow do we share

Refreshing tears on anon


Hope in love is but forgiveness

A hand clasped when we stumbled

The grudge brushed off in peacefulness

With kindness anger humbled


Love is giving without taking

Generosity in full

It is doing without breaking

It’s catching when one might fall


Love is a good and joyful thing

Sunshine bright among the rain

It’s a life more than a feeling

Unadorned, simple, Beauty Plain


This Poem is inspired by the ideals of love put forth by the youthful character Cherubino in Mozart's Opera The Marriage of Figaro. Here, instead of a hormonal teenager, Love is embodied by all of the good things one looks for, going beyond lust and confused feelings to a good place, where the simplicity of Love makes it all the greater.

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?


You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.
