The Colorful Eye

The Colorful Eye

November 8, 2018

Red tastes like fire. Gray sounds raspy. Green feels smooth. Purple smells like feet. But blue, blue just looks blue.   We can see colors but we cannot taste them. We can see colors but we cannot hear them. We can see colors but we cannot smell them.   No one knows why. Why we can only...

A Tale of Life

A Tale of Life

November 8, 2018

From a leadoff cry to the giggles followed by, From a chaotic mess to a calming lullaby, From the first glimpse to the endless sights, From the promising grounds to wishful heights, From best to worst and worst to best, Moving on as the days went by,   For what’s mine is mine to receive.   ...

Something Down Below

November 8, 2018

Swirling in nothingness seemingly silent yet screaming with noise Down here death bells toll damning those who dared to defy Always searching for the way following the sounds of presumed safety Nothing is safe down below, where the death bells toll   Shapes cascading across endless walls shadows looming ...

Filed under Fall 2018, Poems

This poem is a poem in which I drown, in which my lungs fill with ev’ry verb and noun They all start as something else and end like this, start with sweet, soft stuff and end with the abyss like forgotten monuments or broken towns   But there’s no water here, not a drop around, and n’ocean wou...

Can Someone be Good without God?

November 2, 2018

When pondering whether someone can be good without God, it almost seems like a forbidden subject. Some people in the world believe that a person's religion defines them for life regardless of the choices they make throughout their life. Others believe that people make choices and decisions every day to be good or to be bad. Fo...

Does (Class) Size Matter?

Bigger is not always better in terms of class sizes for students at various universities.
