and so this was christmas…

and so this is christmas

year’s end
another season
of
searching
for
reasons
why
the unexplained
remains
unexplained
lost souls
seeking
the
light
in a world
covered
with
perpetual clouds
and
gentle voices
calling out
for
peace and love
unheard
among
the ruckus
of life and war
voices
all heard
before
old-time records
stuck
in grooves
overtones
seen
by those
in power
as
just
discordant notes

  1. To Be Human

    is to fall in love over and over,
    to never give up on any of them,
    to cry for the inhumanity, and try to
    overcome all that surrounds us by creating
    a closeness with those in proximity, both
    geographical and philosophical. It is to
    carry those loves in our heart, flooding our
    minds no matter how gone they are. And
    to put others’ needs first, understand their
    flaws, work on our own so we can be
    better helpers. It is to take it all in and
    follow our dreams no matter how preposterous;
    to pull apart another brown paper bag and
    to write it all out, no matter how choppy.
    So take my hand and make it all better
    before I repeat the painful parts until
    I can no longer act. To struggle past
    obstructions and obligations, self imposed and
    expected; to wallow in joy, build strength and
    change what we can for the better. To give.
