We live in a scary place with death around every single corner...

Poetry On Odyssey: The Ugly Side Of The World

At a young age, we are taught about the world we live in, but our parents sugar coat it to an extent that we can feel safe, sheltered, and oblivious. It isn't until we are much older that we begin to see the true horrors that surround us. The world is full of surprises, you never know what to expect, but one thing is for sure, we beat death each day.

In the blink of an eye, anything can happen,

Something so awful you couldn't imagine,

He could decide to end it, the love of your life,

And it can happen in the blink of an eye,

Someone could grab you in the dark of the night,

And it can happen in the blink of an eye,

My children could be abducted, doesn't matter if they're mine,

And it can happen in the blink of an eye,

I could be taken too, tied up, no one to hear my cries,

And it can happen in the blink of an eye,

A drunk driver could kill my family, a bitter goodbye,

And it could happen in the blink of an eye,

I could be raped, by someone I know or a random guy,

And it could happen in the blink of an eye,

I could disappear, no one would know where or why,

And it could happen in the blink of an eye,

And the scariest, most inevitable fate of all, I could die,

And it could happen in the blink of an eye.

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.
