How I Hate Christmas

I have many siblings

Eleven to be exact

Some are more important

Especially my younger brother

My older brother gets

A lot of attention

But after his birthday

The youngest is more important

They skip us / the middle children

My younger cousin

Whose birthday is the day

After mine

Gets more attention

Than me

Maybe it’s because

My birthday is always on

Thursday

But I still hate my younger brother

Christmas

Chess is Life

Life is like a game of chess,

either black or white, one side or the other.

You sometimes win, and you sometimes lose.

But we learn in the process.

Just like in chess, there are many obstacles,

bumpy roads, ups and downs.

There is a beginning and there will be an end.

And sometimes, we finish with nothing.

Just like chess, in life, you start with people by your side.

Pawns begin to die, and it opens your eyes.

Now you are more careful,

and won’t make the same mistake again.

Then we gain confidence.

In life, you open up and start taking chances.

In chess, you risk more valuable pieces.

Then you lose someone important.

In distress, you hide, feeling safer.

In chess, you surround your king with your last pieces.

You become harder to reach.

No one can get through to you or your king.

You surround yourself with everything you have left.

Holding on as long as you can.

Until, someone breaks through, making everything worse.

In deep distress, you fight back, only to lose.

Game over.

The Fall

If yours was the last hand to hold before a grand fall,

I would understand if you let me go.

Ours was one of great ebb and flow,

in tidal waves of our greatest woe.

In the cave of slowly dwindling light,

one of us must get out alive.

Take the ember torch and go,

shadows creep past the receding glow.

When the final wave crashes against the jagged rock,

and the meager light goes out in smoke,

don’t look back in solemn regret,

on the very first day that we both met.

by Hugh Mac Niell ‘16
