    Thought I may have had new faces,
    To share it with,
    To contribute to my holiday spirit.
    Thought I may have gone to new places,
    Where I wouldn’t find traces,
    Of the last year’s disappointments.
    Thought this year would have been,
    Like nothing I’ve never seen before,
    With activities galore and me,
    Never sitting being bored,
    Out of my mind,
    Time after time…again.

    So again there is a void,
    In my holidays to fill,
    With families sharing together,
    Cheerfully not forced,
    And against their will.
    Where the tradition is formed,
    And it becomes a norm,
    For clans to come gather,
    Where we fight for the chance to cook,
    Rather than,
    Fight to avoid seeing each other,
    Because no one wants to be bothered,
    With the guilt of not thinking enough,
    To get a single card…
    Is that so hard?

    Maybe I should stop looking at other families,
    And stop asking friends to give me a rundown,
    Of their holiday filled festivities.
    Then I wouldn’t have anything to compare,
    And if I don’t ask, then neither will they,
    Then I’ll have nothing to share.

    I look around…
    House looks the same,
    All year round,
    Nothing’s change,
    Same as before,
    Nothing less,
    Nothing more…
    It’s still just a wish

    This is deep and heart felt, Chastity. You said it yourself: you may wanna quit comparing your family to others. You know what I've found throughout the years is, every family has issues, and yours isn't any worse than anyone else's. The perfect family is a myth. Merry christmas and peace to you, girl.

    I agree with gempis, all families have problems, some worse than others true, but comparing gets you no where. I know where your coming from though, well felt vibe. Merry Christmas!!

    if we compare ourselves
    we always come up short
    but if we look how far we've come
    we're always ahead
    heartfelt poem
