Poetry On Odyssey: To My Little Brother

I don't tell you enough how much you mean to me...

Poetry On Odyssey: To My Little Brother

A nuisance, a loud crying baby,

I can't express how annoyed you made me,

But I was young and I didn't know,

That you were a blessing in disguise before you had even grown,

A shoulder to cry on,

Someone to rely on,

A friend to play with anywhere,

A little brat to constantly tug at my hair,

Someone to always ruin my makeup,

A partner in crime coming in for back up,

A kid who squeezes a little too hard when he hugs,

But doesn't mind that it hurts you, he only shrugs,

He grew like a weed right in front of my eyes,

And into an amazing young man, he's turning out fine,

A boy to talk to me about boys, and make sure they are good for me,

A middle schooler who is wise beyond his years and he doesn't even see,

A gentleman who holds doors open for people and knows his manners, knows what's right,

A child nonetheless, but on his way to manhood, he'll do amazing things when he takes flight,

Someone who is almost as tall as me and can take me down in a second,

But if he hurts me in any way, his kind heart makes him regret it,

Someone with the biggest heart, always looking out for others,

A best friend to me, my amazing little brother

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
