Poetry on Odyssey: To The Pieces Of Myself And You
Start writing a post

You do not see but I am a million colors.

I am a bursting bright crisp lemon pouched in a summery green bouquet of life

I am also calm, the gray you breathe in of a foggy city street and haunting corners of monochrome blocks.

With these of fire and ice, of what you may see as plain good or evil,

I am also everything in between.

All these lights from the brightest of stars but are dim lights nothing in its pride?

Yet see the flickering candle in the wind of might

for it is not the effort nor passion that weakens its flare.

A dull speck blinded by the talented or restless sparks

Lost and found

Found and lost

Where do you look in a vast night sky?

To you that is nonexistent, to me that is the entirety and more

I wish to lay my palette in all the ways that you may see

but I wish to keep some as close to my deepest core.

Unknown shades inevitably seep through.

How many hues of blue is enough to make waves violently clash against each other only to come to one?

All is left of the fierce scattered blue

is a soft ivory stroke on the edge of the shore

faint traces of lingering regret and desire

I am the colors you will never see

The colors you see are the colors of your night and sea

colors which I cannot see

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
