I am sure that many will identify with your pain, and the ongoing suffering and pain of your nation. It is an effort, but we must not give in to despair. Resilience is needed more than ever, and mutual encouragement.

Beautifully written "rant." Love the imagery of the onion layers forming from outside in. The photo is outstanding with the text. The first thing that came to mind was a pearl forming from outside in also. How to see such a situation as a thing of beauty is a challenge. Even some pearls are shaped like tears.
Well done! And Merry Christmas!
Lucy

Wow. Well written, a powerful expression. It's odd that some people always feel this sadness and aloneness that the world is feeling during the 2020 season. It had to improve after this year, just has to, doesn't it?

Even in the best of times, this time of year can be difficult for some. I'd be willing to bet that there are more people than we imagine struggling with depression. We used to be good at hiding it, for instance, by hiding it behind a Rudolph nose, as you say. We ARE failing, but still we keep trying. I really think the onion metaphor is excellent in this, the rhymes add strength, like in the first three stanzas (my favorites). Thanks for offering this, and if you find you're stuck with onions, make some French onion soup and find a quiet place to read!

    Thank you for reading and reviewing this piece. I felt better writing and releasing the feelings but submitted this with some trepidation -- is it simply rambling?? Nice to see your words:)
    I have made many soups during this at home time but never onion soup--- may be my next quest:)
    Thanks again, and stay safe.
