Each Day Should Have Some Halloween

By on October 29, 2018

Door to door, the kids are trick or treating
Collecting candy for overeating.
Kids are cloaked in possibility
A day to choose who you can be.

A day for creativity to be celebrated
A simple tradition that’s not outdated
A day where uniqueness can strut and preen
Each day should have some Halloween.

A time for fun and simple pleasures
For all the neighbors to come together
A break from routine, a time to play
When we forget to be serious for a day.

The things that scare us we try to face
A day when fear is met with grace
A day to notice others and be seen
Each day should have some Halloween.

A day to indulge in what you like most
To admire your gifts and even boast
A day when kids choose who stands beside them
And parents stand back but wait to guide them.

Everyone’s happy. Look what a little sugar can do.
Imagination rules and each year seems new.
A special day for adults, kids, and teens
Each day should have some Halloween.
