Mag 166

we all dream...

we all struggle 
because of this dream...
illustration by Helen Ward

while struggling,
we will learn,
strength and weakness...

and by learning
our strength and weakness,
we can design our path...

and with designed path,
we can have a better way...

and with a better way,
dreams can be a reality...

A Fun Break


JJ happy Mood Company
Burlington, Ontario

To: Mother Nature

From: JJ Rodriguez

Date: 11 April 2013

Re: Season

I just want to remind you that Spring Time is suppose to be felt for 2 weeks now. But, still freezing rain and snow are visible in the area.

It is disappointing that for this simple reason, I have no other options but for you to be demoted from "mother" to "Sister Nature!"

middle finger

i went for a walk
as i want to breath 
some fresh air.

i have been hurting inside
of things that i cannot just
simply tell someone
without being stopped
by all the negativity...

i was more devastated
when a white car 
with three or four passengers in it.
all are maybe late teens to early twenties
laughed at me and 
the guy on the front passengers side
gave me a middle finger.

i was so disappointed.

feeling upset at the moment
i continued to walk.
and when i am a little calm...

i thought to myself,
i hope those kids realize what they did.
and how they will have the chance to know
what kind of person i am.

and i continued to walk.

and maybe about five minutes later.
same kids riding a blue-greenish van
gave me again...
guess what?
the middle finger again.
this time, 
it is the one sitting on the driver's seat.

i just close my eyes
and feel it.
the pain,
the disappointment.
and told myself,
there will come a chance
that this kids will learn...
learn that what they did is not funny;
and it is not what they can be proud of
when they are already of same age with me.
