Happy Freakin Birthday

Seems there ought to be a law
that one is never alone on ones birthday.
That the balloons and party favors
should never mock the loneliness.

Full bowls of chips and nuts
enough beer on ice to last a month.
Birthday boy all dressed up with nowhere to go
drinking on a dark front porch...alone.

Handful of real, true friends
staying painfully till they could safely escape.
Howling at the moon in full monty
sick and tired of sick and tired.

Empty bed, humming Happy Birthday
as the numbness brings sweet relief.
Just another harbinger to so-called life
finding ones joy must be the trick.

Perhaps the concept of happiness
in on vacation with ones elusive muse.
Seems there ought to be a law
one is never alone on ones birthday...

Nothing new under the sun, so they say
time and time will soothe the raging beast.
Its the day to day mundane, the ordinary
eventually smothers the unbearable...

Man, do I ever know this one.
Good job.

We are all equal but were individually different
and able to reach the impossible if we try.

*big huge hugs*

There's nothing like a good fight with a horse to put your problems into perspective
Happy Trails To You
