A poem a day for 2013 - day 303 - Hallelujah
Dear people who judge people for celebrating Halloween: Shut up and mind your business and raise your children the way you want to and leave other people to dress up as ballerinas and monsters and ninjas and then practice yoga and when did fucking yoga become a sin? Dig a hell for yourselves and leave other people to have the fun they choose because why are you worried anyway because you get to choose to open your doors or not. It is quite ok that you do not believe in witches and ghosts and goblins and maybe they don't either. Perhaps they just want a night to be with their families and collect Tootsie Rolls and check them for razor blades the next morning at the kitchen table. Fuck you for denying them that right. What are you doing with your family tonight? Are your children bored in their rooms while you are downstairs watching Scandal? The point is that we get to choose to do what we want to do with our lives. As long as no one is violating your personal space and safety can't you just cut them some slack and love them anyway, even when they don't believe as you?
