▪️this is massively important▪️
we often wear wigs
masking thorns in our twigs
as we try to exist
with twists that persist
🔻
my cloak of invincibility
at times, gets jiggy
as it wobbles
pride gets swallowed
emotion runs wild
equanimity exiled
serenity defiled
🔺
i want to seem perfect
as i hide behind the curtain
i may be a wizard
but i'm not invisible
to the effects of the eternal
i am self-aware of who i am
and want to become a better man
i apologize for my failure
to heed a helping hand
i was hurt at first
fretting the worst
my mind swirled
perceived judgement being hurled
while it took a minute
to fully digest it
your wisdom and insight
showed me the light
it may be a chronic plight
but i'm ready for the fight
to live a beautiful life
thorns, warts, hogs and all
❤️
::thank you for showing me love:: 🥑🥑
te amo avo
guacamole cannoli can be extraordinary
jus don't get crazy wit da gravy
holy. moly.
i shoulda gon ez on the frijole
ya catch my whiff?
ya know what i bean?
lo siento por el overflow
the ancho de mi poblano
si no bueno.
i was totally out of lime
marinating takes time
the recipe was easy peasy
ingredients are you and me
and gravity makes three
a pinch of pepper
a dash of salt
jalapeño, serrano, sriracha
or whateva captcha grabs ya
we can always rearrange
when flavors become passé
the song remains the same
808s to keep you safe
frequencies so crisp
texture so rich
that when life adds
too much cilantro
our guac in the throe
of messico al fresco
i will hold fast
with tomatoes that last
baron avogadro
against the undertow
a stow of ripe avocado
like gnocchi on heaven's door
profiterole to keep us warm
in the eye of the storm.

⚓️ 🐻🐻
Before the risin' sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We'll start out walkin' and learn to run
And yes, we've bearly just begun 💗
This was waiting for me upon my return home from a highly successful business trip. My heart is overflowing with joy + happiness. I love my niece and nephews so much!
