I AM Odysseus

By Alex Reynolds

Odysseus is from an ancient Greek work called the Odyssey by Homer. I chose Odysseus because is a hero who had a very long string of bad luck when all he wants to do is go home.
I am lost and adrift.

I wonder if I will ever return home.

I hear naught but the endless crash of waves.

I see an unending blue around my small battered boat.

I want to end my Odyssey.

I am lost and adrift.

I pretend I am home before my accursed journey.

I feel the warm salty breeze of the ocean around me.

I imagine an island the hasn't changed in twenty years.

I worry if they've moved on.

I am lost and adrift.
