Poetry on Odyssey: What A Girl is Made Of

Since there is more to us than meets the eye.

Poetry on Odyssey: What A Girl is Made Of

March is known as Women's History Month, where we celebrate many achievements of what brave and courageous women before us and with us did throughout their lives. We also appreciate the ideas, culture, and contributions of many notable and ordinary girls in our lives, making us live better as time progresses. This poetry is a recognition of the many girls in our lives who make life meaning and make this Earth a better place.

The beauty of your eyes

are not what your beholder sees.

The sweetness of your voice

is not what they hear.

It's the courage you bring into their heart

when times go rough.

It's the happiness you flow out to the world

that they relish within.

You are not just any girl

but a strong, empathetic, and powerful young woman

It takes a lot of grit and gut to be you

but trust me it's worth every bit

This so-called "society"

is built on beating us down.

However, it's up to us

whether we let it.

You hold these values deep in your heart:

love, grace, strength, and truth.

Because you know that,

this is what a girl is made of.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.

Hittin' the Road Playlist

With the end of August approaching more quickly than many of us would like, the preparation for school is happening in more ways than just one.


The car is all packed. The money you saved (and didn't spend online) from your summer internship is secured quietly in your bank account. The immediate reunion with your long-distance college friends is set. The real question on everyone's minds is: do you have the perfect melody to jam to as you journey back to school?
