Beyond The Tinsel
By Ian Hochberg
To all those whose lives turned out less than what they wanted, about which holiday cards are not composed,
Who look to December’s aura times to forget their thinning wallets,
A troubled child, his family torn apart, her dreams, hope and love in ashen embers.
You are as precious a part of life, as much as those who seem to have all that is withheld from you now. Our lives are what they are. Some of us have less than we deserve, yet more chances for better than we can imagine.
As 2012 blends into this new year, Please know how valued you are, losses, gains and all.
