Biography of Cody Osterberg
I started writing around my freshman year in high school. Poetry was not my area of focus until late in my sophomore year. Now, at almost twenty years old, I have made poetry a semi-serious hobby. The only reason I haven't taken it beyond semi-serious, is due to the fact that I write best when my emotions are at their worst. I try not to let that happen very often for obvious reasons. If I start a poem and find that I am not satisfied with it, it gets trashed before completion. Because I am so critical of myself, there are quite a few poems that have never made it anywhere but the trash can. the poems you see here, are what I consider my best, my favorites, and my most imaginative. I truly hope any readers would agree.
Cody Osterberg Poems
It's the way of the world, Its in our blood. We live for a reason, We live just to die.
Pain: Beginning And End
Pain Ever present yet unexpected Hand in hand With loss
Sometimes Love Just Isn'T Enough
Love, As wonderful as it may be, Sometimes just isn't enough. For what is love,
So I told you, The way it will be. So I told you, What could happen to me.
Going In Blind
Every other time, I let lose my mind. I'm in my prime, But soon I will find,
Bite the bullet, Or kiss the gun. Let's get it done, While we're young.
Call me insane, But I cherish the pain. No matter what I feel, Pains the only feeling thats real.
A Note Of Sorrow
I give up, I'm sick of this shit. Wandering lost, Spending life in the pits.
I'm a sinner. Blood sweat and tears, I play on your fears. I'm the one to knock you down,
Since day one, Since birth. I swore to take on, This whole damn earth.
A Sinner's Prayer
Here I stand, A broken man. I've traveled far, Across the land.
You think you know, But you ain't got a clue. Man you cant understand, What I've been through.
One day, I'll make it through. Can't be stopped, Ain't like you.
You say you hear, But do you understand? You say you see, But do you comprehend?
Forgive me father,
For I have sinned.
Shamed by my actions,
How can I ever hope to be redeemed?
Forgive me mother,
I have strayed from the path.
I know this isnt what you wanted,
I'm far from your hopes and dreams.
