we generally meet people that either
ravage our soul or fill it with love.
Its been difficult
but I am trying to recognize it's
whom I allow into my world;
soul eaters or loving people.
One would think this is something I would have learned in grade school.
But, apparently there are many like myself that tenaciously hold on to those rose colored glasses.
Sounds like an honorable trait but beware – people like us must be especially wary of the charming façade of the soul eaters.
And as my friends,
I would consider it an act of love
were you to remind me to remove those
damn rose-colored glasses
should any of you see them re-appear on me.
Thank you each.
