Poetry On Odyssey: Thoughts

Sometimes you just need to sit back and think about life...

Poetry On Odyssey: Thoughts

The desolate darkness speaks,

Louder than your words and louder than your shrieks,

So listen, listen to the whispers from the demons in your head,

Lay down on your pillow, darling, and let the tears be shed,

Think about the past, good and bad, let your heart ache,

Remember the memories, the best ones, the ones containing mistake,

Think about the future, where you'll go, and who you'll be,

Is it perfect the way you picture it? Do you like what you see?

How does it feel when the darkness encloses around you?

Do you feel engulfed? At ease? Or scared to move?

The feeling while you're alone, thinking in the dark, isn't anything of content or zeal,

But rather a sort of uneasiness because everything that crosses your mind is absolutely real,

The thoughts, reflections, scenes, dreams, all of them a piece of your life,

And you lay there pondering, either smiling, or about to cry,

I look forward to going to bed each night, and it's not to count sheep,

No, the last thing I do is sleep,

Instead I lie there, eyes open, mind awake,

And think about my life, and the paths I'll take.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.
