Christmas Day

From the fog I emerged
opposing the the needle
as the road submitted to
my acceleration the white
line broken merging with
my constant velocity
driving me to return
to the childhood past
to celebrate the traditions
with the living half of whom
gave me life the one
with whom I fought
disappointed despaired by
my difference
lacking in conformity
and sometimes
I hurt from the flippancy
annoyed by the hesitancy
we found our common
ground learning to understand
and built our bond beyond
duty and blood ties
to become friends comfortable
in our company and coexistence.
Listening to my philosophy
caring about my problems
Now when my words are
misunderstood, is
not from lack of comprehension.
Just a lack of hearing.
