Down, Set, Hike

~ Down, Set, Hike ~

~ Kevin ~

Down you went.

Nothing to circumvent.
What you underwent,
I forever lament.

My life spiked.

I must have the wherewithal
To withstand that curtain's call.
So we're told,
But I wasn't set
To forever part with my greatest asset
Not prepared at all to deal with it.

Yet here I stand. Still.

Dreamlike, deathlike,
So far I must yet hike
Alone and dethroned,
Ghostlike, dreamlike
Now forever bemoaned.

My counterstrike unbeknown,
I swipe tears and groan,
And I go on.

I must make it to that end zone.

Today is Super Bowl Sunday. For some that means gathering together, grilling, and eating a not-so-small amount of food, while for others it just means another lonely Sunday without our loved ones.

If you have the chance, go spend it with friends and family; enjoy yourself. Maybe even allow ourselves to laugh at a commercial and ignore crypto ads. It's okay to be distracted. To let go of our grief.

Come join us otherwise.
