Poetry on the Odyssey: Lost

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

Poetry on the Odyssey: Lost
Daniil Silantev


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.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.
