A Day in the Life

You must live and not just exist.

If you are so busy
being angry at the world
for what you were not given,
you will miss the things,
the people,
the time,
the love,
it did.

You will take in attempt
to get what is owed
More.
Anger, bitterness,
recession of happiness. 
The lowest fiscal quarter 
for all the happiness 
we’ve had.
Could have had.
Judge, criticize,
take away so you can add.

Let go.
Give yourself away.
Live in hope and kindness,
breed forgiveness,
stow away the times that will incinerate
those who
will
not
let
go.

Before I am your daughter,
your sister,
your aunt, niece, or cousin,
I am my own person,
and I will not set fire to myself
to keep you warm.
