Holiday Reminder (Poem)

Everyone else is celebrating the holidays with someone,

I’m alone,

It’s the day that I’m reminded that I don’t have someone,

It’s the day that makes it harder to be alone,

I get more depressed because I don’t have someone.


I try to pretend that it isn’t a holiday,

Yet I keep getting a reminder,

I get e-mails saying happy holiday,

I wish they’ll stop with the reminder,

Yes, there are offline and online people giving me a reminder.


It’s like everyone assumes that everyone has someone in the holiday,

They are so excited to celebrate with their friends or family,

Not realizing that some are alone in the holiday,

Not realizing that some don’t have friends or family,

Still I manage to survive the heartbreaking holiday.
