Merry Christmas everyone!!!


"Christmas... is a time for reflecting on the sublime paradox, and wisdom, of what Christ said that you have to become like a child to enter the kingdom of God. You don’t have to be particularly religious to appreciate that. You can always take that to mean that you have to remain youthful in spirit if not in body to know the meaning of joy." ---Conrado de Quiros

Twist of Fate

I could have come five years earlier
To learn the ways of this land
It would have given the time and the youth
For me to become like one
It would have helped me understand your ways
Your feelings, your heart
Why you move the way you do
Why you laugh, why you cry
If I had come earlier
We would have seen the world with similar eyes
We would have known each other
We would have become like sweet lovers
But as it stands I know nothing of you
Except that I dear for you
In the quietest of whispers
And behind the whimpers---
I reckon that if I have come earlier
Our worlds would not have been different as they are now.
