Poetry On Odyssey: Thoughts

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

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.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.

It's a topic that needs to be talked about way more than it should, especially in today's world: mental health. Whether it be anxiety, depression or O.C.D.

When Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in by the Supreme Court, she insisted overturning Roe v. Wade wasn't on her agenda. That landmark case made it possible for pregnant people across America to legally choose whether to have an abortion. There are many reasons a person would want to terminate their pregnancy. Money, age, health and sexual assault are just some of the reasons a person would choose to get an abortion.
