Day 7: Gift

If I could give myself a gift,

I would wrap it up in newspaper

the edges carefully tucked,

with the Sunday cartoons.

.

I wouldn’t open it slowly,

I’d tear the paper off, eager

to see what’s inside

I’d open the lid, and find,

under all the wrapping paper,

a small paper with delicate handwriting:

“Everything will be okay.”
