The power of positive thinking
is supposed to keep me from jumping off the depression cliff.
Being bright and full of light
is supposed to make me a vibrant person to be around.
Crisp apples crunching in my teeth
can give me years of whiter teeth and Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E and K.
An apple a day
doesn’t necessarily keep the doctor away if you burn the candle at both ends.
Being married and having children
is not a solution to a childhood of dysfunction, fear and PTSD.
does not make your ex spouse any more sane.
Visiting children bring
their rancor and learned patterns of hostility in a brown box wrapped with a bow.
