tis the season

tis the season to get in one’s car.
meet all one’s friends at the local bar.
get drunk off one’s ass.
try not to drive very far.

tis the season to bite one’s lip.
sitting with family as you hear a short quip.
to think of all the baggage we carry.
that weight we need to finally bury.

we think that coming together once a year
eating a feast, opening presents, drinking beers
will make all those bad memories disappear.
but these meetings often compound our fears.

we often feel alone in our families.
we often wonder how we could be related.
what role did genetics play.
where did our environment go astray.

if you decide to drive drunk this holiday season.
think twice, give up your keys and use reason.
give people a second chance, no matter how hard it may be.
tis the season to embrace life and be free.

    We had a great Christmas. My wife and kids really changed my life. For all of you who dread this time of the year I have been there too. I just please ask you to not drink and drive. I wrote this for all of you who are driving to the bar tonight.
