This is truly mind-blowing.

So I went to make a grocery run for my family, and I was met with a line that wrapped around almost the entire Sam’s Club building, and people were in line waiting. The insane thing was they weren’t six feet apart, the only distance was the cart between them. I turned around and went to StaterBrothers, they are one of the only stores that you can actually go into and find most of the things that you need. Everyone that works they are so kind and helpful, which is why when I saw a man yell at the young man that worked the meat counter because they didn’t have numbers. I was utterly speechless, but he handled it with dignity and respect, that is how people should be in when faced with rude people.

The photo above is the toilet paper aisle, they were thoroughly cleaned out of everything, including all kleenex and Clorox products. It’s like when COVID-19 hit, everyone lost their mind and decided to stock up on it.

So again, I would like to thank my neighborhood StaterBrothers for being so amazing!

To my heart I will be true, said the girl to her empty soul
And when you open up again, will he fill it, keep it full?

To touch, to feel, gaze into your eyes, think of the possibilities
Maybe your soul will find it鈥檚 way back home, with a familiarity

Her heart is healed, though the scars remain hidden deep within
Longing for what her parents have love forever sent

Strong, fierce, loyal till the end, she found herself again
Only wanting to find her missing half, finally to become whole

But she is happy, completely free
The only thing she needs to do is finally take the leap

Wishing for only happiness, she rises up like the phoenix she is
Her soul鈥檚 a shining beacon shining from within

Her Heart

Her heart, it beats deeply
Her heart is fathomless

She loves fiercely
She is love

Though it may have scars from life
They are not deep enough for her to give up

We all have had our heartaches, and breaks
But we are still here, fighting for a chance at real happiness

That thing your parents have from fifty years of marriage
Knowing that someone loves you as deeply as you do them

Her heart, it beats deeply
Her heart will grow

Sleeping Kiss

There once was a fair maid with a long main of curly red locks
She was wandering the forest until she got herself lost

Laying upon a hill of the softest green moss
Quickly she fell asleep, not giving it another thought

And on that fine day, a dragon cavalier was out hunting just for sport
He came upon the maiden, it threw him out of sorts

He鈥檇 never seen such beauty in all the land far and wide
Walking to where she lay, studying her as she sighed

His mind was in a whirlwind, he couldn鈥檛 even think
He was so parched he had to take a drink

Her lips tasted like candy, honey-sweet and so very soft
When her eyes fluttered open, the breath in her lungs caught

For arching over her was a man with a handsome bearded face
Wearing the reddest armor that she had ever seen to date

She knew right at that moment, he was of the dragon鈥檚 keep
They were the saviors that protected all the land and he was
grinning at her, she couldn鈥檛 help but watch, she didn鈥檛 make a

And when he spoke to her, her heart began to race
She couldn’t help herself, she reached up and touched his face

He rescued her that day, returning her to her parents unscathed
A fortnight from then, they were wed, to live happily ever after in

During their life, they would reminisce about that fateful day
The Sleeping Kiss was a fairytale that they told children when it
was time to sleep

And with that, the story had spread across the land
But it had changing so much throughout the years, but the story
was the same

The Flame in the Willow

The willow was relaxing one beautiful spring day
Stretching its branches as the breeze fluttered away

Birds nesting high up in the tree, as mothers fed their hatchlings
A girl was out that bright day flying a kite lofty through the trees

She felt as if she were up there, floating, feeling free
The willow looked upon her and instantly it knew peace

Hearing her squeals of laughter, the smile upon her face
He wanted to make her happy, protect her, to have her visit as she, please

Willow didn鈥檛 know that feeling but was content with it all the same
Days turned into months and graduated into years, she would always
come to visit, and as time passed her passions changed

First, she was into climbing upon his sturdy arms, perching there for
hours staring at the stars
Then, she starting reading, leaning upon his stalk dreaming the day away

Finally, she brought a man with her, enjoying a picnic underneath his lush canopy
The man got down on one knee and to her great surprise opened a tiny box and asked her to be his wife

He heard her tell him yes a hundred thousand times and at that moment he began to realize
It was love that he had for her, it was the flame in the Willow burning bright within, that
gave him so much joy

The moral of this story is love is there so take it in, don鈥檛 be afraid to show it, or you might miss out on happiness
That I have no doubt
