The Child's OdysseyIll tell you of my adventure
Across the seven seas.
Ill tell you of my deadly battles
And enemies I killed with ease.
I crossed the deserts of Arghan
And scaled the mountains of Jhune.
I rode across the plains of Mata
And sailed the waters of Loon.
My horse resembles Pegasus
And my companions, like Marco Polo
They fight right along my side
And never leave me solo.
Our ship takes us to foreign lands,
Weather in the sky or on the ground
And when inside my home-towns walls,
I know Im safe and sound.
But thats a rare occurrence,
For I only return every decade
With many stories to tell the kids
Until goodnight they bade.
I continue on to Parasole
At the very end of the earth,
But first I cross the fires
Of the flaming plateau of Zerth.
I steal many kings plunder,
Containing jewels and gold
But I hear the dragons like that stuff,
Or so what Ive been told.
I now utter many languages;
Burgan, Xan, or Fransheek,
But nothing compares to the things I say
What's BeyondBeyond these mountain ridges I see
The forest's edge and the tallest tree,
Running moose and herded cows,
Little sparrows on tree boughs.
Beyond these prairie meadows I see
Wild horses running free,
Prairie dogs surfacing here and there,
Little fawns prancing everywhere.
Beyond these arctic dunes I see
Whales splashing around with glee,
Penguins waddling to the ice berg's peak,
Polar bears hunting what they seek.
Beyond this glass mirror I see
Someone staring back at me,
She's lively, fun, sympathetic, and kind,
So why is she so hard to find?
Too Innocent For ComfortShe smiles as a seven-year old
Doing everything she's told.
She gets good grades, like her brother.
Impressing her friends, her father, her mother.
She shares her toys and makes her bed.
And eats everything she is fed.
But now she smiles as a twenty-year old
Doing everything she's told.
Giving the boys what they desire,
Saying she's fine and becoming a liar.
So here she is, crying on her cot
Being everything she's not.
And She CriedIt only recently happened. It changes everybody and gives everyone a new head start. Its challenging, frustrating, and brutal, but will be one of the most significant 4 years of your life.
Theyve been best friends since they were senseless toddlers who lived across the street from one another. They had sleepovers, play-dates, and birthdays. They shared germs, toys, and memories. He was her best friend, and she was his.
She recalls that one time when they were going to have a sleepover on a warm, summer night. Her mother helped her cross the street over to his house. The mothers chatted, oblivious to the two children. He grabbed his stuff and she beckoned him. They both began to run across the street and suddenly, a car flew past, inches from scratching their noses. The mothers gasped the two in their arms, screaming while crying.
