And see me

My mother is a Christian. My father is atheist and my stepmom a Jew.

And you lump me in a category, what is wrong with you?!

I am many things, but hatred I am not.

Peace and love is all I have all else I feel should rot.

Instead of seeing me as liberal scum have a different plan,

I wish you would start seeing me as in a fellow Americans

Let’s do one even better, don’t see me behind a wall.

Just see me as a fellow human. And nothing else at all.

Hindsight is 20/20

First I had a vision.

Then went on a mission.

I cannot stand for in decisive in decision

Then I saw a red hat, standing with a gun.

Then I knew that science was finally on the Run!

Come on, bring on, Summer.

Go out with one another.

I cannot stand if you bring this to my brother.

Then I saw the virus, sitting with a grin.

Saying now it’s time for the party to begin….

happy birthday

Today is my birthday, happy birthday to me!

40 years have gone by, a lot I did see.

But this is the weirdest birthday of them all.

Quarantined, alone, up against the wall.

No restaurants to go to or anyone to visit this year

No movie to make me laugh, scream, or shed a tear

The virus we can’t see it but we know it is there!

Cannot risk going out, for it is everywhere!

Thank you to all who reached out to me on the phone.

I know I’m not the only person to celebrate a birthday alone!

We cannot celebrate together. We must be smart and think twice.

Alone on my birthday is my small sacrifice.

We all have cabin fever. The weather invites. But stay inside!

I love you. Please, no one, take the covid-19 ride!

It’s my birthday, I am allowed one wish to come true,

I wish love, health, safety, to each and everyone of you.
