That Dark Horizon: A Poem

Dark landscape

Are you familiar with that dark horizon?


The one always with nighttime skies –

Never daylight –

And doesn't even have the light from the moon and stars –

Even if you're surrounded by them?


Where there's no escape to another place anywhere else?


Where you're stuck for what seems like forever,

Leaving you wondering endlessly about when and how you might escape –

And possibly never return?


Where you're always thinking when and how to abandon all the darkness around you,

As well as that within yourself –

Because of it?


Well if you have been familiar with it,

You're one of the lucky ones –

To have found your escape and have come out into bright and sunny skies again.


And if you haven't,

Now you have some idea of what it's like,

So you can do whatever's in your power –

In your light

To try to not go near it.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!
