I don’t know how to make it rhyme
when October is starting to chime.
For there are things
that I always remember
when it is October.
Those childhood days
when my teachers made me recite
all the different mysteries
in the weeks of Rosaries.
And although I love candies
I never really like
knocking on people’s doors
begging for some sweeties.
And as I grow older
October showed me its colors
when Halloween was a part
of ghostly and unforgettable horrors.
‘Though I won’t say it is the best
I did enjoy Oktober Fest
the beers are flowing endlessly
when adolescence has taken me breathlessly.
October is not just color orange
for the pumpkin and the black witches
I remember the pink ribbon
I sometimes wear on my chest
And sometimes I really wonder
why the Breast Cancer Awareness Month
coincides with Oktober Fest
Is it because my chest hurt so much
when beers in can are my breakfast and lunch?
But if there’s one thing
that I will always remember
in the beautiful month of October
I wish I will not remember
that I am not getting any younger.
How about you,
what do you remember in October?
