Poetry on Odyssey: We Are All Demons Wanting To Be Angels

We only get this one chance to have everything we could ever hope for.

Writing for Odyssey has allowed me to expand the topics that I write about. I would never have said a year ago that I would be confident enough to write and share my own original poetry with the world. The thing is, in order to become more confident in your skills, you have to take a leap of faith and trust yourself. So, I'm going to take a leap of faith by sharing my poem, and I'm excited to see how I land.


We are

We are all demons wanting to be angels

We are all sinners wanting to be cleansed

We are all villains wanting to be heroes

We are all humans wanting to be gods


We continue to

We continue to pride ourselves

We continue to have envy

We continue to lie to others

We continue to make mistakes


We still hope

We still hope for a better tomorrow

We still hope that we can change

We still hope that we will become better people

We stillhope that a heaven is waiting for us when we breathe our last breath


We only get this

We only get this one life to live

We only get this one chance to have everything we could ever hope for

We only get this life to look forward to and nothing else


We have to fight

We have to fight to better our mistakes

We have to fight to be the greatest version of ourselves

We have to fight to make this the best life we can have


We are all

We are all cursed with humanity

We are all seduced by the devils kiss

We are all subjects of nature's cunning flaws

We are all tricked to eat the forbidden fruit

We are all demons wanting to be angels

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
