How To Conquer The Monster That Stole Your Holiday Cheer

A large weight is shouldered by a weary frame.

Despite the holiday cheer, what most closely reflects a tax collector’s heart occupies this poor souls’ chest cavity.

Each thump keeps score, tally, a list that may or may not be checked twice.

A game of ping-pong, always an anticipated return.

As this gloomy, yet all too familiar, figure walks away your voice is absorbed by the wind.

“Remove your burden: receiving graciously is a gift.”

Celebrate this holiday season without the obligation of reciprocation.
