Fake Holiday - Poem by Kaysen Fraker

stuffed animals

All of these are objects
objects that are bought
objects that are given
objects masking falsehood

Valentine's Day
it is suppose to be a holiday about love
about expressing that love
with things

Where is its background
what god/goddess inspired it
what event in history made this day
why do we celebrate Valentine's Day

Some say it is to celebrate love
I say that you should do that every day
love is a blessing
not an icon that gets only one day of worship

Valentine's Day
is about putting money in a salesmen's pocket
is about the false worship of love
is a holiday without foundation

Love should not be worshipped one day out of the year
love should be treasured everyday
you shouldn't need a holiday
to tell the one you love...

'I love you.'

    absolutely not, we don't require a particular day to say 'i love you'' but what's the harm in celebrating your love. you don't need to spend if you don't want to. (Report) Reply
