Oh, it begins. The happy, perfect families Christmasing videos and photos on my Facebook newsfeed. Not that I have anything against it –
So you’re nearing forty
Spent most of your twenties building a career
Most of your thirties building a nice family –
You know – the whole works:
A nice house with a garden
Two kids – preferably a boy and a girl.
Your wife’s most important attributes to you –
Her beauty, housekeeping abilities, and exquisite taste in fashion.
So why not parade your happy, perfect family Christmasing on Facebook?
Somewhere – along the way,
Something went wrong.
You followed all the rest.
Because that’s how things are done
And this is how you’re supposed to live your life.
Why is that spark in your eyes extinguished?
Why can I see a smile on your lips,
Not in your eyes?
