When Facebook Suggests Friends

by Stephanie Alfaia

The past?

Wish it well
Send gratitude for its lessons.
Release painful memories and
Allow them to become difficult homework.
A reality you overcame,
Eyes widened towards a brighter future.
Smile at your ability to grow, 
To forgive, 
To keep pushing –
The present?
Value it
Stretch its minutes,
Devour its sparks of happiness
For a honed spark is long lasting.
