How often have I run away
Especially when something doesn’t go my way
And covered my ears and screwed up my eyes?
Denying what I have just learned,
Can’t believe it has to go this way,
A moment given and taken and refused.
New twists and turns are rejected
Or completely ignored,
Very often I have read of times
In which these are put down.
Destructive habits only learned or
Even time just wasted.
Only seen as useful for party tricks and coordination.
Get a bowl of popcorn or maybe a little dinner.
A moment of the day where everyone gathers ’round.
My family starts different stories that we play through
Even if we’ve played this one before.
So maybe you think these are a waste of time, but for us?
It’s one more thing to experience as a family.
Written for no particular reason except for the fact that my family likes to pick one of the Final Fantasy games (most of the ones out are owned in a spread across my many siblings) and then we curl up at the end of the day and play through the story-line for a bit. It’s nice, like watching an interactive movie.
