'Tis the season of giving


The only gifts that matter to others are the simple ones, the human ones, the kindness, appreciation, friendship and love. Let us remember your friends, family and even your furry family want our presence more than presents.

Blessed Christmas!

Underneath her clothes


She wasn't alone, but she was lonely.
She wasn't small, but she was invisible.
There was this girl.
This girl that I once knew so well,
probably as much as I had known myself.
She was one who begged to differ.
She wasn't allowed any dog,
so she buried a dead frog
that she found in the school park.
She would scooped glue
from the little tub and ate it.
As if it was some tasteless jam.
She would tear papers into little pieces
and chewed them.
As if they were some leafy vegetables.
In many ways, she was very much
an attention-whore.
"Look at me! Look at me!"
If only you could hear her thoughts
scream out loud.

Goodbyes


...and now we get to the hard part. The endings, the farewells, and the famous last words. If you don't hear from me often, remember that you're in my thoughts.

Loss


I lost a brother today.
But they lost a son,
a companion,
a best friend,
a confidant,
the apple of their eyes.

Reminder: trash vs treasure


Be watchful that you're not chasing trash,
while the treasure at hand slips through your grasp.
