It's In The Eyes, It's In The Smile


Of “agua fiestas” be wary
those have-dark-cloud-will-travel minions
sure on your party to rain
their dastardly designs
in charm holstered, concealed carry
quick draw ready caustic opinions
their aim to despirit, demoralize
preying on vulnerable minds
 
Instead cherish the soul builders
whom, like a comfy brassiere,
lift and support  
their sisters and brothers
ones who recognize,
and accentuate  
the good in others
that care unconditionally  
and love without fear
