Some of you...(To truckers Mikey, Chase, and Josh...Who are all headed home)



Some of you are...

just finsishing finals

before you start a long trip home...

Some of you are...

 just bumping

the last unloading dock

and then pointing it toward the motel...

Some of you are...

just checking baggage...

Some of you are...

staring toward heaven 

as TSA caresses places

not touched in a decade...

Some of you are...

already wondering

how ya can stand

another mile of "are we there yet?"

And "Daddy! Jason's  still on my side!"

Some of you are...

About to stop the car. 

Because you can no longer

 stand the ride...


Some of you are....

wishing on a previous

holiday trip...

Some of you are...

Wondering how come this one

 is already going by so quick.

Some of you are...

missing someone

who's no longer there.

Some of you are...

angry at anyone

who this year

 just doesn't care.

Some of you are...

trying to cover the bills,

even as you wonder

 if the car can make it...

Over all the hills...


Some of you are...

dreaming of love

still

yet to come...

Some of you are...

praying that this time

hope won't come undone...

Some of you are...

wondering

why

they have the holidays at all

Some of you really...

can't believe traffic

can actually move

at a stillness

slower that crawl....


Some of you are

Occupying space...

Some of you are...

Traveling in pairs

Some of you are...

Greiving new loss

Some of you are....

angry over a job

or at your boss....

Some of you

will drink, or smoke or avoid

The day....

While Some of you will 

sit in silence

as a fire roars close

Thankful...

to see another chance...

that it turned out

Exactly this way.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

I wish you safe travels,

that you get where you're going,
that you're surrounded by those whom you love,
and that if--God forbid-- anything gets spilled,
you're able to get it back out again
with a minimum of staining..
