Now The New

Oh the Holidays filled
with happy memories
and sometimes tears

But what kind of tears
is the question
Is it tears for the joy
of memories past
Or tears for the loss
that evokes

The loss of family and friends
The loss of youthful exuberance
The list goes on and on

Unless we break
the chains of pain
and focus on new memories
and rituals we create
Now

And in the future

I'm a philosopher, dreamer, poet, writer -- not necessarily in that order -- and I get to write it all down and share it with the world thanks to the Wonderful World Wide Web!
