Poetry on the Odyssey: Lost

Two friends talking as they try to get back to their cabin

Poetry on the Odyssey: Lost
Daniil Silantev

Lost

There's trees,

Endless amounts of trees,

and not a sign of civilization,

besides me and my friend.


I think we're lost,

I say to my friend,

who ignores me,

I said, I think we're lost,

Oh, I heard you,

she said,

I just didn't want to listen to you.

We're all lost if you think about it,

she continues,

Lost in our dreams, desires, wishes,

I interrupt her,

Yeah, but we're physically lost,

I don't see the cabin,


She keeps going straight ahead,

as if she has any clue where she's going,

Just follow the sound, and it will lead you in the right direction, we're not lost

she says,

You mean, 'follow you're heart, and it will lead in the right direction,'

I correct her.

Sure, but in this case, follow the sound,

Where there's sound,

there's water,

where there's water,

there's life.

she explains to me.

Oh, so not only do you think we're lost,

you think we're alone?

I question.

I didn't say we're alone,

I didn't say we're lost,

I'm more optimistic than you, obviously,

she tells me.


I'm more of a realist

I beam with pride

Just trust me, I know where we're going,

she turns right and heads straight,

Sometimes you can step away from being a hard ended realist, and be an optimist,

she continues.


Before I could answer,

she shouts,

SEE there's the river,

that means we head straight and we'll reach the cabin.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

5724
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.
